On Saturday June 21, 2014 Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church will be transformed into a health and wellness center for men in the community to learn their individual health status through a series of screenings that are absolutely free.
All males 18 and older are invited to attend and participate in on site free and confidential screenings on blood pressure, prostrate, cholesterol, BMI, HIV, weight, height etc.
This Health Initiative has the potential to promote the long term benefit of preventive health care, particularly in the African American community where black men live 7.1 years less than any other racial group.
Know Your Numbers is a unique collaboration between Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church Penn Medicine/Chestnut Hill Hospital, to conduct the largest screening event for men in the Philadelphia area. The event will also include a day of educational health lectures.
Additionally, Know Your Numbers will once again feature “Man Cave” activities such as: chess, card games, video games, and barber services.
Finally, Know Your Numbers will provide economic incentives with local businesses providing 10 percent off services for men who participate in the event.
Know your numbers will be held at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church 2800 W. Cheltenham Avenue, from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM.
