ELMIRA, NY (WETM) – On Saturday, April 23, 2022, Man 2 Man Forum hosted its first Men’s Health Day here in the Southern Tier to ensure men stay and stay healthy.
Man 2 Man Forum’s goal for the event was to emphasize the importance of having healthy men around.
“A healthy man creates a healthy environment, a healthy family and a healthy community”, Herbert Smith, President, Man 2 Man Forum.
One of the things that stands out in the male culture is that men don’t like going to the doctor, changing that stigma will produce healthier men across all age groups.
“Early detection is delayed for a few minutes, and if they get an early detection of something, the doctor has a better chance of dealing with it,” Robert Clark Sr., participant, Men’s Health Day.
This men’s health fair shared information to help in several areas of men’s health. Various tests have been done to help men receive the results they need to be healthy and motivate them to stay healthy.
“I think the most important thing today is to get people to take these different tests, they have blood pressure, diabetes, colon prostate,” Smith said.
The man-to-man forum is planned to expand on the theme of men’s health, making this event an annual event moving forward.
“I think if we can reach out a little more in the community and make people more aware of the importance of this, it will prolong life, so we should be able to improve this,” Clark Sr. said. “All of us We all have a role to play. Each of us should reach out and let someone know about this form, its importance and what it does for us.
