Jun. 12, 2017

 UR Medicine’s 13th Annual Men’s Health Day will be held on Friday, June 16, 2017.  Caregivers from across UR Medicine will discuss a range of important health topics that will give men the knowledge and tools to better engage in their own health.

The event is sponsored by the Weinberg Family, in memory of Alan S. Weinberg, and will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Locust   Hill Country Club, 2000 Jefferson Road in Pittsford. 

“Many of the health problems that men face as they age can be managed and even prevented by making healthy lifestyle decisions, seeing your physician regularly, staying on top of screenings, and taking control on one’s own health,” said Jean Joseph, M.D., M.B.A., a urologist with UR Medicine and organizer of the event.  “Taking these steps are the most important things men can do to extend their life and remain healthy and active as they age.”
