Men are invited to the 12th annual Kickoff to Men’s Health Big Screen Event on Tuesday, Sept. 13, from 5-8 p.m. to receive a free, potentially lifesaving, preventative screening.
Those attending will also have a chance to meet NASCAR driver Mark Martin. This event is hosted by Arkansas Urology and Epoch Health in observance of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and will be held at Arkansas Urology’s Little Rock campus, located at 1300 Centerview Drive.
Each man will receive a free comprehensive men’s health screening, including a combination PSA-DRE prostate exam. Arkansas Urology and Epoch Health physicians will check for potential heart, blood pressure, kidney, bladder and metabolism problems. Physicians will also assess vitamin, nutrient, LH, FSH and hormone levels (including testosterone, estrogen, thyroid function and prolactin), as well as conduct DNA tests for hypercoagulability, screenings for potential internal bleeding and urinalyses.
Arkansas Urology and Epoch Health will also give away a flat-screen TV every 20 minutes to men who get screened. Men are encouraged to call 501-219-8900 to schedule an appointment. Screening results may be mailed to participants or specific results from a healthcare provider may be relayed by phone. More information about this year’s event is available online.
