WASHINGTON, April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Partnership for Male Youth (PMY), a Washington, DC-based nonprofit organization, announced that it is providing full access to its rich online database of literature on the health and wellbeing of males ages 10 through 26, at www.pmylibrary.org.
The fully searchable database contains over 2,500 summaries of peer reviewed, scholarly, popular media and opinion literature, published since January 2013, which relate to the unique and unmet health-related needs of young males. Each summary includes an embedded link to the original source material.
This is the first time that current literature about the health-related needs of this population has been cataloged in a searchable database. Going forward, it will be continually updated on a weekly basis.
"We are very excited to be releasing this important material, which will advance our mission of promoting the health of young males," said David L. Bell, MD, PMY chair. "One of the greatest needs we have in our field of work is information that helps us begin to more fully address their unique and unmet health-related needs," he said. "This is a major step in that direction."
"This is one of the many important initiatives we are undertaking this year to advance our mission," said Dennis Barbour, PMY President and CEO. "Others include the 2017 National Summit on Adolescent and Young Adult Male Health, which we will hold in Washington DC this November. It promises to be a groundbreaking initiative as well."
The Partnership for Male Youth is the only national organization whose sole mission is to advance the health and wellbeing of males ages 10 through 26. It is composed of 20 national organizations with input from six federal agencies.
