Attention Men – You’re Invited!
Our Woodlands Urology Division has partnered with Pints for Prostates and the Prostate Conditions Education Council to offer a FREE Men’s Health Screening on Thursday, May 19, 2016.
Location: Woodlands Medical Specialists ~ 4724 North Davis Hwy., Pensacola
Check-in is at 5:30 p.m. and screenings will run from 6:00pm – 7:30 p.m. Tests will screen men for elevated PSA (prostate-specific antigen), testosterone, lipids and glucose. *Age requirements starting at 40 years old.
RSVP by calling 850-696-4000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Woodlands Urology promotes that starting at the age of 40, all men should have a conversation with their doctor about prostate cancer screening. The decision to screen is one that a man should make with his doctor and should be personalized. A simple conversation about screening for prostate cancer just might save your life.
Our Woodlands Urologists and Robotic Surgeons, Dr. Taylor Vaughan and Brett Parra will be onsite prior to the screenings to educate men about prostate health and screenings for prostate cancer.
Pints for Prostates reaches men through the universal language of beer to encourage them to take charge of their health. The group was founded by prostate cancer survivor and beer writer Rick Lyke in 2008. The grassroots effort raises awareness among men about the importance of regular men’s health screenings by making appearances at beer festivals, social networking and pro bono advertising. According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 240,000 new prostate cancer cases are diagnosed annually in the U.S. More information is available at www.pintsforprostates.org. Pints for Prostates also has a presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@pints4prostates).
