Series of Educational Events Geared Toward Men Planned for June 

MACON, GA (Monday, June 9, 2014) – The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) will host a series of educational men's health events during the month of June, in conjunction with Father's Day and Men's Health Month.

Events are designed to encourage men to increase their personal wellness, and will focus on a variety of topics. The following events are scheduled:

  • Tuesday, June 10 at 12:30 p.m.- Heart Health Information for Men
    • Led by Wendell Ellis, M.D., Central Georgia Heart Center
  • Tuesday, June 17 at 12:30 p.m.- Improving Mental Health for Men
    • Led by Richard Camino-Gaztambide, M.D., Mercer University School of Medicine – Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
  • Tuesday, June 24 at 6:00 p.m. – Men's Sexual Health
    • Led by Jason Burnette, M.D., Urology Specialists of Georgia

Each event is free and open to the public. All three events will take place at The Wellness Center, 3797 Northside Drive in Macon.

“Oftentimes, men are so busy with their daily lives that they neglect their health. Father's Day is a wonderful time for people to encourage the men in their lives to take a time out for health. By emphasizing healthcare for men, The Medical Center of Central Georgia is encouraging men to pursue personal wellness before a serious illness occurs,” said Charles Krauss, Community Health Educator for MCCG.
