About The Health Initiative for Men (HiM)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. For more information about HiM, visit griffinhealth.org/him.
