Kanabec Hospital’s Men’s Health Event A Success

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011 at 9:57 am

Kanabec Hospital was excited to host the annual Men’s Health Event for the men in our communities. The event was a great success, and Kanabec Hospital welcomed the opportunity to provide information, education and needed health screenings. The hospital is committed to ensuring that healthcare is accessible to all our community members and the health event was an excellent opportunity to meet this commitment. The Health Event was an opportunity to get your flu shot, visit with health care professionals, participate in health screenings and assessments, and listen to exciting speakers.

The Hospital was proud to feature Jack Morris of the Minnesota Twins as the featured speaker at the Men’s Health Event. Jack is a former Major League Baseball right-handed starting pitcher. Dr.  Dean Tortorelis was the Hospital’s featured health care speaker on the topic of men’s prostate health and prostate surgical options. Dr. Tortorelis is one of Kanabec Hospital’s Urologic Surgeons.
