Prioritizing Men’s Health: A Free Forum

As Father’s Day approaches, it’s an opportune moment for men to take a proactive stance on their health. In alignment with National Men’s Health Month this June, Greater St. Stephen Ministries is championing this cause by hosting a Men’s Only Health Forum. This crucial event aims to encourage men to prioritize their well-being through proper nutrition, regular exercise, and routine medical checkups.

A Community Event Focused on Men’s Health

On Saturday, June 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Greater St. Stephen Ministries invites men of all ages to Morton Hall at 5600 Read Blvd., New Orleans, for a free health forum dedicated to men’s health. This event is not just a forum but a lifeline offering invaluable health insights and fostering a culture of wellness among men.

The forum will feature distinguished speakers such as Dr. Stephen Carrier, a renowned urologist, and Dr. Calvin Williams, a respected general surgeon. They will address pressing health issues that disproportionately affect men, including prostate and colon health. These sessions aim to raise awareness and provide practical advice for maintaining a healthier lifestyle.

“Regular medical checkups are essential for proactive healthcare, and men should prioritize scheduling and attending them,” said Bishop-Elect T. Delbert Robinson, Senior Pastor of Greater St. Stephen Ministries. “Early detection is healing and it will add years to your life. Greater St. Stephen prioritizes men’s health, and we encourage all men to take charge of their health.”

Indeed, men’s health is not just a concern for men alone but for their entire families. Wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters are all affected by the health of the men in their lives. A father’s health can directly impact the family’s overall well-being, making it a communal issue that deserves attention and action.
