Gather the Guys for Men’s Health Night at Southern Ocean Medical Center June 20

Jun 06, 2018

On Wednesday, June 20, Men’s Health Night at Southern Ocean Medical Center in Manahawkin is an evening devoted to personal health and well-being. The annual event for men of Southern Ocean County was rescheduled due to a winter snow storm that forced cancellation of the original date. The time and place are 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the newly renovated main floor of the hospital, at 1140 Route 72 West. Doors open for registration at 5:30 in the main lobby.

The free event will include community resources, health screenings, interactive educational displays, informative lectures, information on a variety of programs and services, and the opportunity to meet and chat with medical experts about men’s health concerns. Light refreshments will be provided.

On-the-spot health screenings will include: balance and carpal tunnel; grip strength; blood pressure; blood sugar; cholesterol; bone densitometry; diabetes; colorectal cancer; head and neck cancer; hearing; sleep; foot; pulmonary function; and stroke risk assessment.

This evening that is dedicated just for men will also feature lectures about men’s health from some of Southern Ocean’s expert physicians:

• 6-6:20 p.m. – Caring for your Prostate, with Francis Schanne, M.D.;

• 6:30 - 6:50 p.m. – The Keys to a Healthy Heart, with Jasrai Gill, M.D.;

• 7- 7:20 p.m. – Are You at Risk for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms?, with Matthew Samra, D.O.;

• 7:30 - 7:50 p.m. – Sleep Apnea: Diagnosis and Treatments, with Jeffrey Lipper, M.D. and Dave Federici, DMD.

“Every year, our expert physicians, community resources and team members make it a priority to keep men of our community healthy and enjoy the opportunity to interact with so many men in a meaningful and fun way,” said Regina Foley, chief operations officer of SOMC.
