MEMAH’s “Get Healthy Altadena” Event Offers Free Health Screenings on February 24
Men Educating Men About Health (MEMAH) will present their inaugural Get Healthy Altadena event on February 24, 2018, at the Altadena Senior Center. The purpose of the health event is to empower men and women with knowledge of their current health status, and provide traditional and alternative options for health prevention and treatment, including FREE health screenings.
“Our goal is to give all attendees a whole health experience, so they can make informed health care decisions,” says Jim Morris, executive director of MEMAH. “We want to introduce all of our participants to an exciting and healthy lifestyle that will increase their longevity and quality of life.”
MEMAH partners with Kaiser Permanente of Pasadena and many other health providers, local restaurants, and vendors to conduct this year’s event. Free services will include ultrasounds for the heart, arteries, liver, and kidneys; prostate, diabetes, cholesterol, stroke, and blood pressure screenings; body mass index (BMI), vision, hearing, and dental check-ups; massages, health seminars, and more. Free lunch will be provided to participants.
Get Healthy Altadena is open to all adults, regardless of socio-economic status or medical coverage. This year, MEMAH expects to reach their goal of providing free health services to over 9,000 men and women through their health events.
Get Healthy Altadena takes place on February 24, 2018, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Altadena Senior Center, 560 E. Mariposa St., Altadena. Pre-registration is encouraged. Visit www.meneducatingmen.org for more information.
