4 Reasons to Attend Men’s Health Day
In support of June’s recognition of Men’s Health Month, Coplin Health Systems will host a Men’s Health Day, allowing men the opportunity to be screened for various labs. The event’s mission is to encourage men to be screened routinely to prevent and curb potential health risks in the future.
Here are four reasons why men should take advantage of this upcoming event:
1. Various tests will be available. From 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. June 29, participants can be screened for various labs, including:
● Thyroid (TSH)
● Blood Count/Anemia (CBC)
● Cholesterol/HDL/LDL/Triglycerides (Lipids)
● Glucose/Electrolytes (CMP)
● Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
These tests can help determine your current health and detect any health complications, such as certain cancers, diabetes, etc. If identified early enough, some health issues can be treated.
The screenings will be held at Southern Local Wellness Center located at 906 Elm Street in Racine, Ohio.
2. You can discuss results with your healthcare provider.
Participants will be mailed their results soon after the event. You’ll then have the opportunity to discuss results to your own healthcare provider to discuss the outcome, or you can schedule an appointment with a provider from the Southern Local Wellness Center. Whichever you choose, the provider will explain the results, make suggestions on lifestyle changes, and determine what should be done next if the results have a negative outcome.
3. You’ll receive educational materials.
Along with the screening, the event will have plenty of educational resources available for participants to take home. Testicular self-exam cards, information on prostate cancer and more will be available.
4. You’ll have peace of mind.
The screening event will allow you to be tested for potential health concerns in one sitting and results will be available soon after — a quick and easy way to evaluate your health status. These results will give you an indication of your health and offer guidelines on how you can prevent future complications.
The cost to attend the event is $30 — cash, check, or credit card payment will be accepted. The payment will not be billed to an insurance company.
It’s advised that participants not eat or drink eight hours prior to testing.
Appointments are required to accommodate social distancing and wearing a mask is also requested for your visit. Call 740-949-2348 or River Valley Family Care at 304-273-1033 to schedule an appointment.
