PLYMOUTH, N.H. — Breaking down barriers and promoting a shared experience in a casual atmosphere is the purpose behind It’s a Guy Thing: a men’s health event to be presented by Speare Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, October 30. The event will be held at Biederman’s Deli & Pub in Plymouth beginning at 5 p.m.
“We have had a tremendous response to our women’s health events the last two years, and many people had asked when we were going to do something similar for the men,” explains Michele Hutchins, director of community relations at Speare Memorial Hospital. “Our goal is to not only get men talking about their health and wellness concerns, experiences and how to be proactive; but bring them together as a community and engage with our local providers.”
Dr. Tim Lyons, anesthesiologist and president of the medical staff at Speare, will be the emcee for the evening, which will include the following presentations:
Use It or Lose It: The Effects of Untreated Hearing Loss
Dr. Mary Louise Brozena, Sound Advice Hearing Centers, Inc.
You’ve Got to Move It
Dr. Victor Gennaro, Plymouth Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
Prostate Myths, Facts and Sexual Dysfunction
Dr. David Towne, SMH Hospitalist
Presentations begin at 6 p.m., but registration and social hour open at 5 p.m. with healthy Oktoberfest themed hors d oeurves and cash bar. There is no charge for the event, but advance registration is requested by calling (603) 238-6468 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
