Join us for the 2018 Men's Health Forum!

The Mruk Family Education Center on Aging of Baxter Regional Medical Center is hosting the tenth annual Men’s Health Forum on Thursday, October 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Baxter County Fairgrounds in Mountain Home. This year’s theme is Below the Belt Health for Men Matters, and keynote speakers will include Dr. Rodney Traeger on Urological and Sexual Health in Men, BRMC Occupational Wellness Coordinator Jonny Harvey on Supporting and Strengthening Your Core, and a Q&A Health Panel featuring local experts and providers.

A number of booths at the forum will also provide free screenings for simple memory testing, cardiovascular risk factors, balance, diet, hearing, fall risk factors, and more. Attendees may bring their most recent lab results and discuss their risk factors with professionals. They may also bring in either a list of all of over the counter and prescription medications or supplements they take, or they can bring the bottles in a bag. Danny Ponder, PharmD, of Ponder Health/Allcare Pharmacy will be joining us on the panel, but he will also do a "Brown Bag Medication Review" from his booth that day to let men know if anything they are taking contraindicates with their prescriptions.

The Men’s Health Forum is a free program for men only, and lunch will be provided. Seating is limited, so pre-registration is required. To reserve your spot, call the Mruk Family Education Center on Aging at (870) 508-3880, email mfecoa@baxterregional.org, or click here to register online.
