PURPOSE: 

To invite all men to one location to celebrate them and to introduce them to available health services and sources.  We bring the community together to address and focus on health disparities among men in our community. 

 

Why The MAN CAVE event is NEW-- we are so excited to be in on the ground floor with this program. The events will held in the community at a hospital to ensure easy accessibility. Child care will be provided — not only during the party, but also at the time of testing, if necessary, in order to remove a potential barrier in a participant keeping his appointment.  Each event is equipped with a D.J., and access to health wellness, and health professionals. Men are educated regarding their insurance benefits, the importance of health screenings (an annual wellness exam that includes a prostate exam), and about the health resources available to them in their community.

We believe that all men should have the opportunity to have a prostate exam, and heart, diabetes and HIV /AIDS testing. Focus on smoking, exercising and mental health. There are resources available to assist with this being a reality. We want them to have the opportunity to get everything checked out while at the party.
