Santa Ana, CA, 6/14/2016 – Mobile Medical Examination Inc. “MedXM,” a national leader in the design and implementation of preventive care technology and in-home health risk assessments, announced today that it will offer a men’s health fair to employees in honor of Men’s Health Month.
The MedXM Men’s Health Fair is meant to help men on the sidelines of the health management field spring into action. The Men’s Health Fair is being offered by MedXM to provide men and women with fast and convenient health screenings and access to educational materials about diseases to which they or a loved may be prone.
“This is so important because men tend to shy away from visiting the doctor as frequently as women and as a result put their health and longevity at risk,” said Sy Zahedi, MedXM CEO. “By offering MedXM employees a Men’s Health Fair, we feel we can contribute to affecting their behavior and ultimately make them more active participants in their own health maintenance.”
Ladies are encouraged to attend and learn more on men’s health as women can save lives by looking for and recognizing the signs of common health problems affecting the men around them.
Lack of awareness, inadequate health education, and culturally induced behavior patterns contribute to poor health of men in America. Men die, on average, six years younger than women and have higher fatality rates than women for all ten leading causes of death. For example, 50% more men than women die of lung and colorectal cancers and nearly twice as many men die of heart disease.
“We are confident that through consistent education and events such as the MedXM Men’s Health Fair, we will start to see change in the overall health status of men, especially in our male employees,” said MedXM’s Provider Trainer, Krista Stone RN who is heading the event.
Men visiting the health fair will have their BMI and blood pressure checked, and will learn more about prostate health, nutrition and diabetes.
