You can discover your risk of developing prostate or colon cancer, learn how to quit smoking and prevent strokes, and gather all kinds of other health information at the 12th annual Cleveland Clinic’s Minority Men’s Health Fair.
The free event is from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 24, in the lobby of Glickman Tower, 2050 East 96th St., on the Cleveland Clinic’s main campus.
Free parking is available in the P1 garage at East 93rd Street and Euclid Avenue.
Last year, 1,200 men attended and underwent more than 6,000 screenings. The annual event, founded by Charles S. Modlin, Jr. M.D. of the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute, aims to address the healthcare disparities experienced by minority patients in Northeast Ohio. African-Americans have a shorter life-expectancy, higher incidence of death from heart disease and die from prostate cancer twice as often as white males.
Registration is strongly encouraged. To sign up, go to clevelandclinic.org/mmhc or call 216.445.7550.
