Griffin Hospital Offers Free Men’s Health Talks, Health Screenings

DERBY, CT (May 29, 2014) – Griffin Hospital will host two men’s health talks and free health screenings this June to help men know and understand their numbers.

Dr. Brian Sperling will present “How ya doin’, Man?” on Thursday, June 12 and Tuesday June 24, 2014 at the hospital, 130 Division Street in Derby. In recognition of Men’s Health Month, these talks will explain common health issues for men and when men should be screened to see if they are at risk.

The first talk on June 12 will focus on prostate and urinary health. Attendees over 50 years old can have a free Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test. Testing will be available at 5:30 p.m. and the talk will begin at 6 p.m. 

The June 24 talk will focus on testosterone and sexual health. Attendees can receive a free blood pressure and A1C diabetes screening.
Participants at both talks will receive a “Play for Free Card” for the Sports Center of Connecticut in Shelton. Testing will be available at 5:30 p.m. and the talk will begin at 6 p.m.

The presentation is part of Griffin Hospital's “Healthy U” series of free wellness talks featuring Griffin Hospital medical experts and community partners providing trusted health information and answers to questions on a wide range of topics. Light refreshments will be served.
