Griffin Hospital to hold men's health day in Shelton

 DERBY – Griffin Hospital’s Health Initiative for Men (HiM) invites men to receive free health screenings, earn some free games and take a chance to win a grill at its first Men’s Health Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 29 at The Sports Center of Connecticut, 784 River Road, Shelton.

Held in recognition of Men’s Health Month, the event is entitled “The Nuts & Bolts of Men’s Health” and will feature a series of health information tables and free health screenings, including Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test, blood sugar, blood pressure and Body Mass Index. 

For each station completed, attendees can earn a “Play For Free” card from The Sports Center, which can be used at most of the Center’s attractions such as the driving range, mini golf and batting cages. Attendees who complete five or more stations will receive a $25 activity card for the Center.
Attendees will be entered into a drawing for a Char-Broil grill worth $399.

About The Health Initiative for Men
In an effort to help inspire men to have an annual physical and to raise awareness about men’s health issues such as prostate cancer and colorectal cancer, Griffin Hospital launched the Health Initiative for Men (HiM), a community-wide preventive healthcare effort. 
The goal of the HiM is to influence men to see their physician annually, and to be screened for various diseases that respond better to treatment if detected early.
