Partnership with the Freemasons Foundation
The Freemasons Centre for Male Health and Wellbeing at the University of Adelaide is an initiative of the Freemasons Foundation.
The Foundation is the charitable arm of Freemasons SA & NT, and is one of the leading charities supporting men, their families and communities.
In keeping with their benevolent mission, the Foundation has provided major funding to the Centre since 2007 to allow us to support students and early career scientists to undertake research aimed at improving the health and well-being of men.
As a national leader in men's health research, the Centre supports world-class programs in basic science, clinical and population health, health services and preventative health and social science. It does this by bringing together multidisciplinary teams of scientists and clinicians across South Australian universities and national and international research centres.
