The Sexual Medicine Society of North America has announced a public education program commemorating a decade of treatment for erectile dysfunction: The first tablet to treat ED was introduced 10 years ago.

The goal of the educational campaign is to increase awareness and understanding of ED and its relationship to cardiovascular health and to provide evidence-based information on other men’s health topics. The first phase of the program will consist of a series of town hall meetings across North America, to which men and their spouses will be invited to directly question experts on all aspects of men’s sexual health.

It is hoped that this first phase of the program will stimulate a national conversation on men’s health. The first town hall meeting will be held in Toronto in October 2008. This meeting, as well as those that follow, will be edited into a series of web casts that will be available on the society’s web site: www.smsna.org.
