Stand By Your Man…Helping Your Red Hot Papa Live a Longer and Healthier Life

Advertisement for the Red Hot Papa - Stand by you Man: Helping red hot papa live a longer and healthier life - event. October 3, 2017It is all about the men in our lives this month at Red Hot Mamas! Spouses, brothers, uncles, and friends are invited for an evening of education, perhaps a bit of laughter and some bonding over a snack or two. Ladies, be sure to add October 3rd to men’s calendars and then, on that day, encourage them to attend or, if necessary, drag them out and come find out how to help keep them healthy.

The October presentation will cover men’s health, the leading causes of death for men, top health concerns, screenings, resources and tips to help men stay healthy. Although men’s health risks are largely preventable, studies show that men take less responsibility for their health. They visit their doctor less frequently and only attend to their illness in its later stages. In fact, men are half as likely to see a health care provider for a physical exam as women and women, in comparison, are 100 percent more likely to visit the doctor for annual examinations and preventive services than men.

Come join us on Tuesday, October 3, 2017. Kyle Clifford, MD will present “Stand By Your Man…Helping Your Red Hot Papa Live a Longer and Healthier Life.” The Red Hot Mamas seminars are free and this time men are encouraged to attend.

The seminar will be in the Pebble Creek Room at Portneuf. Doors open at 6pm; the presentation begins at 6:30. Light refreshments will be served. To reserve a seat, visit portneuf.org/event/rhm or call 208-239-1048. To learn more about Portneuf’s upcoming seminars, including Red Hot Mamas, be sure to like Portneuf Medical Center on Facebook.

When you take responsibility for your health right now, you can reap the reward of more independence later,” Dr. Clifford said, “Overall, men (and women) should maintain four healthy habits- avoid tobacco, stay active, eat well and scheduling regular preventive medical visits.”
