The “Man Up Checkup”…
A basic health screening designed specifically for men
Research shows men are more than twice as likely to avoid medical treatments and exams as women, with many men lacking a primary care physician. Indeed, a recent study by researchers at the Cleveland Clinic found:
• Sixty percent of American men don’t go for an annual physical
• Guys would rather talk about sports or their jobs than discuss anything to do with their health
• Nineteen percent of men admit going to the doctor so their significant other will stop nagging
• When asked their biggest concerns, men rank their family’s well-being and financial security over their health.
Now, there are no more excuses for dads, husbands and boyfriends who just don’t like to go the doctor. Physicians with American Family Care have created the “Man Up Checkup” – a basic health screening designed specifically for men. Just a few minutes with an AFC doctor can give you the peace of mind that you’re ok – or point you to some simple changes that can help to ensure you’ll continue to be there when the ones you love need you most.
Here’s What’s Included in the Man Up Checkup:
During the visit to AFC, participants in the Man Up Check Up will visit with the doctors and staff of AFC and receive various health screenings, including:
• Epworth Sleepiness Scale
• 0/2 Saturation
• Blood Pressure
• Weight, Height, BMI
• Lipid Panel
