Country Grocer Men’s Health Day
October 5 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
This free event empowers men to take an active role in monitoring their own health care. The key component of this event is free PSA (prostate specific antigen) screening for prostate cancer. The PSA test is a simple blood test that measures the marker for this disease in which symptoms are not always present. It is recommended that men begin undergoing PSA testing at 50 years of age (earlier if there is a family history of the disease). We invite other health related parties to set up booths that offer free health assessments, consultations and educational materials. At the event, men are encouraged to implement positive lifestyle choices and to seek early and appropriate treatment for disease and injury.
