The second “Know Your Numbers” Men’s Health Initiative, scheduled for Saturday, March 24 from 8 AM to 8 PM, is the largest screening event for men in the Philadelphia area. Sponsored by Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church and Einstein Healthcare Network, the goal is to screen more than 1,000 men for hypertension, cholesterol, blood sugar, HIV, weight, height and BMI (body mass index), as well as prostate cancer if eligible, based on screening criteria.

 

The free event will take place at Enon East, 2800 W. Cheltenham Avenue in Mount Airy. Enon will be transformed into a Health and Wellness Center for men to learn their individual health numbers and take charge of their health. “We are pleased to collaborate with Enon again this year because when men “know their numbers” it can help save their lives,” said Steven Sivak, MD, Chair of Einstein’s Department of Medicine.

 

Educational sessions on a variety of topics including prostate and colon cancer, will be offered, and Einstein and other healthcare providers will have experts on hand to answer questions and provide information. Chair massages, card games, barbershop services and more, will also be offered. Glen Ellis, a nationally-known health advocate, author and radio commentator is a special guest.

“Know Your Numbers” is a unique preventive health partnership between the church and Einstein Healthcare Network and aligns with Enon’s 2012 “Year of the Man” mission and Einstein’s mission to provide quality healthcare services to the community.

 

Every man who attends and participates in the health screenings will receive a “Know Your Numbers” rewards card to help save money at local businesses in Northwest Philadelphia. Attendees will also receive an Einstein bag with giveaways and educational materials.

Attendees must be 18 years and older to attend.
