Nov. 24, 2009- Houston, TX – A group of wellness-related non-profits, Houston Buyers Club, LIVE consortium, and Program for Wellness Restoration, have collaborated to present a comprehensive Men’s Health lecture at the United Way in Houston, Texas on December 15, 2009.

When asked why there is a need for this lecture, Fred Walters, director of the Houston Buyers Club, said: “This is a rare opportunity to hear two experts on topics that affect men in every stage of their development from adolescents through old age. There is a huge need for good clinical information about health and wellness and the Houston Buyers Club is proud to part of this program.”

“We are truly fortunate to have these two amazing experts join forces to present this lecture on Men’s Health Issues”, said Beau Miller, President and Founder of LIVE consortium, a wellness-based educational non -profit. “Historically, this lecture topic is clouded by misinformation and confusion – specifically testosterone replacement.
