In honor of Men’s Health Awareness Month, Shore Physicians Group (SPG) is dedicating its November “Be Well Connected” education breakfast to the topic of men’s health.
The event will be held Nov. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon and will include a light breakfast at Greate Bay Country Club, located at 901 Somers Point-Mays Landing Road in Somers Point.
All guests who attend will be entered to win a complimentary haircut and close shave gift basket valued at $100 from Gas Up Barber Shop & Shave Co. in Somers Point.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, men die on average five years earlier than women and are more prone to chronic illness.
With greater awareness of the causes of this health disparity and more diligent attention to their health, men can potentially live longer, healthier lives.
Leading the program is SPG primary care physician Dr. Ulices Perez, who will focus on the unique health needs of men. Following Dr. Perez is SPG endocrinologist Dr. Matthew Corcoran, who will talk about low testosterone, which affects one in four men over age 30.
Closing the event will be a discussion with Mike Costello of Gas Up Barber Shop & Shave Co. on men’s grooming.
