How can women get involved in Movember?

Now that Movember is in full swing, us ladies are preparing to see a sea of mustaches this month. But how can we get involved in raising awareness for men's health?

Shannon Wegner is the female representative for Direct Supply's Movember team, and she shared her personal story that drove her to get involved with Movember. 

About three years ago, Shannon's young father had a heart attack and passed away. Unaware that anything had been wrong with her father's health, Shannon was shocked.

Now with three sons of her own, Shannon is actively involved in Movember and is determined to make men's health an open and comfortable topic for all. Men shouldn't have to be embarrassed about discussing their health, and Shannon says one of the best actions a women can take is to encourage an open environment in which men feel comfortable talking about their health.
