Movember – Men’s Health Awareness Month
“In 2014 alone, about 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed and an estimated 29,480 men will die of prostate cancer. It is critical that men participate in the conversation involving their own health.” Source: http://prn.to/1tHYMrI
Our physicians are proud to be a part of promoting Movember and men’s health awareness. November marks the annual Movember campaign that encourages men to grow out their mustaches in order to spark conversations and raise awareness about men’s health issues – many of which are preventable or treatable with the appropriate level of awareness and action. This year, we are especially focusing on ‘the numbers.’ Ask you urologist at USofGA to check milestone wellness numbers, such as your PSA number, testosterone level, blood pressure, body mass index and cholesterol, among others.
New Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church Health Fair – October 18, 2014
The Urology Specialists of Georgia enjoyed participating in the Community-Wide Health Fair hosted by New Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church in Macon, Georgia. Pastor Curtis Raines was very excited about the event designed to help the community become aware of the many health-related programs, services, and providers located in the surrounding community. The purpose of the health fair was to increase health awareness through education and prevention, which is something that aligns with USofGA’s vision. Stephanie Collins who has been with our practice as a Medical Assistant since 2009 attended the event. She was happy to be involved in a health event that benefited the community.
