Current Features of the Site

  • Men's Health Database - The database is accessed by searching by diagnosis, drug or lab test. Topics of interest can be downloaded or printed for reference.
  • Mobile Access - Users of handheld and mobile devices can access and store information from the database via the popular AvantGo service, or directly via a wireless internet connection.
  • Expert Q & A.

If you have a question pertaining to men's health, you can submit it on line to a panel of experts. Your questions will be directed to the best person to answer it, and pending a brief review by the editorial board, that expert will respond to your question and post it live on the site.

  • Educational hand-outs for patients on diagnosis and treatment
  • Instant messaging: new FDA approvals, research study results
  • Feature length articles from Johns Hopkins physicians or Peers at other institutions
