2nd Annual Men’s Health Symposium
November 7 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EST
The Gaithersburg-Rockville (MD) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., will be hosting its Second Annual Virtual Men’s Health Symposium on Saturday, November 7, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of critical health concerns affecting men as well as highlighting actions participants can take to enhance their state of physical and mental health, resulting in better health outcomes.
According to data (2013-2016) from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 36.6% of men aged 20 and over are obese. Additionally, 31% of men aged 20 and over are living with hypertension. One of the leading causes of death among men is heart disease. In addition to these statistics, there continue to be health disparities in the country, thus exacerbating these health concerns among men of color.
There will be a number of sessions covering topics such as cardiovascular disease and prevention, nutrition, fitness, mental health, health insurance, and other topics.
Registration is required in order to receive the Zoom credentials for the event.
