Recognizing and preventing health problems is crucial. The 2013 Men's Health Conference is the perfect place to begin the journey to better health.

The Louisiana Men's Health organization makes it their goal to raise awareness for preventative health screenings. Some of the screenings available at the event include blood pressure, stroke risk, vision, and colorectal kits. The screenings are provided free of charge.

Also, a host of health topics will be discussed by trusted health care providers. Professionals from the LA Cardiology Associates, Our Lady of the Lake Group, and Pennington Biomedical Research Center will be on hand to educate and equip participants with medical information.
