March MAN-ness

March MANness, a series of men’s health events

With a nod to NCAA’s March Madness basketball tournament, University of Colorado Health created its own men’s health awareness month—March MAN-ness—to emphasize the importance of disease prevention and early detection for men, who typically tend to avoid health checkups.

March MANness will feature providers from primary care, oncology, cardiology, and urology, four medical areas where men’s lives are most impacted—presented March 3, 4 or 6 in Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley. The events will be held in locations favored by some men: breweries and sports arenas, during happy hour. There will be complimentary food and drink, as well as trivia competition and opportunities to win Colorado Eagles season tickets and signed jerseys.

Many men wait until they are sick or in pain to see the doctor. Avoidance often occurs for a number of reasons. Common explanations are that it's embarrassing or inconvenient. Some feel that they're already healthy while others are afraid of the exam and possible results.

At the events, attendees will:

  • Hear stories about community members saved by early detection;
  • Gain an understanding of how nutrition and exercise can prevent cancer and heart disease;
  • Receive information on the importance of early detections screenings; and
  • Learn to identify early warning signs.

Time will be available for questions.
