An Ounce of Prevention 

One of the many problems in medicine is how to reach patients soon enough: early detection and intervention is a critical second to the ideal of prevention. Many of those at risk of disease are not aware that they are at risk, or even if they are they may be inadequately educated on how to reduce risks, or even that it is possible to do so.

All this is a long way of saying how important I think things like this are, and how I wish there were more of them (like this one) that focused on things besides HIV/AIDS: The Terrence Higgins Trust will be putting on a major gay men's health outreach at venues during Southwark's Bear Pride Weekend.

Oh, and now there's an even better reason to drink your milk.
