The health issues facing men today are many – from hypertension to diabetes to prostate cancer. Men, unfortunately, have no DNA related to Superman and regularly neglect their health. While there is no silver bullet to address all the health concerns facing males, a group of men have decided to do something to raise awareness of those issues in the Middle Georgia community.
