Men's Health Conference 2016

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Men! Hit a home run for your health by attending the 2016 Louisiana Men's Health Conference...NOW SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1 at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center. REGISTER HERE

It's a day of free screenings and seminars all with your health in mind. Early detection can be the difference between life and death when dealing with serious disease. This is especially true in Louisiana, where state death rates from heart disease and cancer are much higher than the national average.

In fact, one out of every four deaths in our state can be attributed to heart disease. This means that annual checkups with your doctor are crucial. Unfortunately, most men never visit their doctor for an annual exam.

The 2016 Men's Health Conference is almost as good as an annual exam!  Here's what the day looks like:
