MEN’S HEALTH SYMPOSIUM
The Town of Lamar is so grateful to Genesis Health Care & Darlington County First Steps’ Men’s Health Collaborative for helping to host this one of a kind event for the Men of Lamar.
There was a great turn out at Town Hall on October 22, 2020. Gift cards were awarded and men were able to freely ask questions and gain valuable knowledge about their health management.
The Town plans to host more Men to Men events in the future. Our goal is to bring medically accurate information to the men of the community and encourage them to be more proactive in their health management.
With gracious help from members of the Genesis Health Care team, men were able to discuss issues specific to men’s health (such as Prostate Cancer and ED), as well as general information and health screening advice.
Darlington County First Steps is committed to advancing strategies and policies which address and reduce health disparities in African American males and other men of color in rural South Carolina, through the Men’s Health Collaborative.
Promoting men’s health, the Men’s Health Collaborative provides many services: blood pressure checks, help making referrals to appropriate healthcare providers when needed, education of a healthy lifestyle, and provide resources and information for further enrichment.
Darlington County First Steps has partnered with the South Carolina Cancer Alliance, for help providing support to the Men’s Health Initiative of Darlington County.
Visit the SC Cancer Alliance here for podcasts and resources for guiding the Men of today in cancer prevention, control, treatment, and survivorship strategies.
We are grateful to Genesis Health Care for helping to host this first of a kind Men’s Health Care Symposium. The Genesis Health Care team will be on hand to answer questions, give screening advice and provide information.
Genesis Health Care serves the Lamar Family Care Center, with a strong focus on providing a variety of family healthcare services.
