AAAneurysm Outreach will focus on men’s health at the Aug. 26 conference in Baton Rouge. The annual event brings exhibitors, speakers and health topics to men in order to emphasize risks that are more likely in men.
“The purpose of the Men’s Health Conference is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment, as well as to educate on health risks specific to men of different ages and races,” says Dr. Curt Chastain, President of the LMHO and the Lake Men’s Health Center.
“This conference will also give health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.”
AAAneurysm Outreach will provide lifesaving information about abdominal aortic aneurysms. The event is 7:00 am – 1:00 pm at C.B. Pennington, Jr. Building, Pennington Biomedical Research Center, 6400 Perkins Road, Baton Rouge, LA 70808.
