Philadelphia, March 19, 2012 — The second “Know Your Numbers” Men’s Health Initiative, scheduled for Saturday, March 24 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., is the largest screening event for men in the Philadelphia area. Sponsored by Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church and Einstein Healthcare Network, the goal is to screen more than 1,000 men for hypertension, cholesterol, blood sugar, HIV, weight, height and BMI (body mass index), as well as prostate cancer if eligible, based on screening criteria.
The free event will take place
at Enon East, 2800 W. Cheltenham Avenue in Mount Airy. Enon will be transformed into a Health and Wellness Center for men to learn their individual health numbers and take charge of their health. “We are pleased to collaborate with Enon again this year because when men “know their numbers” it can help save their lives,” said Steven Sivak, MD, Chair of Einstein’s Department of Medicine.
