Huguley Memorial Medical Center’s Spirit of Women program features a new men’s health presentation, Grills, Guys and Good Health. While most men take the time to throw the ball around or fire up the barbecue, they often do not make the time for recommended medical screening tests. The event includes guidelines for both good grilling and good health, as well as local TV personality Scott Murray sharing favorite sports highlights and his personal battle with cancer.
Grills, Guys and Good Health is an easy-to-understand and convenient reference to inform men which medical screenings they need and when. Unlike diagnostic tests, which physicians order when they suspect someone has a disease, screening tests help check for problems before symptoms appear.
Cardiologist Deepak Patel, M.D., and urologist David Rittenhouse, D.O., will discuss men’s health topics including heart disease, prostate cancer, diabetes and stroke. Physicians will also provide tips about things men can do to stay healthy, such as making healthier food choices and exercising.
Local TV personality Scott Murray will speak about surviving his battle with cancer and how important it is for men to take health action. He will share highlights from his book, some of his favorite sports moments from his years of broadcasting, and predictions for the upcoming sports seasons.
TLC’s Barbecue Pit Master Jamie Geer will share grilling secrets, tips and famous recipes. A free barbecue dinner will be served following the lecture.
“Our Spirit of Women program has been so successful in helping women lead healthier lives,” said Spirit of Women Coordinator Jenifer Infante-Palau. “We want to make good health easier and more accessible to men too.”
Grills, Guys and Good Health will be held on Thursday, July 29 at the Huguley Fitness Center Amphitheater from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Free PSA screenings will be available to men who have not had a screening in the past 12 months.
Admission is free, but seating is limited. Please call 817-568-5480 or visit huguleyspiritofwomen.org to learn more or to reserve a place.
