LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Throughout the month of November, GE Aviation and Southern Central Regional Medical Center have "faced off" in a "Movemeber" event to see which company could grow the best moustaches.
Movember was enacted to shine a light on men's health issues ranging from testicular cancer to high cholesterol. Laurel Mayor Johnny Magee said "Movember" should spark change in men across the Pine Belt.
"It comes a part of your every day life and it's a lifestyle change, but it'll be good for us, it's good for us to be healthy so that we can be around for a long time," said Magee. "
"Testicular Cancer, prostate cancer, and mental health are big issues with men. If you're a man, get yourself checked for these things if you have a man in your life," said President of South Central Regional Medical Center's Doug Higginbothom.
