Albany- Hundreds of men brought their families out to Tift Park for the Phoebe Putney Health Institute's third annual Healthy Fathers, Healthy Families celebration.
The families enjoyed some good food and good music, but most of all got free health screenings and important information about men's health.
"Its that macho image sometimes that interferes with a man actually trying to get to the doctor, because they feel that illness can be correlated with weakness, and sometimes men don't like to be seen as weak," explains cardiologist Dr. Robert Glover.
"You've got men out here getting screens in record numbers, you have them talking to doctors, you have them doing their blood pressure, asking for diabetes tests, so when you have that kind of aggressive interest it because they're getting the message," adds Darrell Sabbs of Phoebe Putney Health Institute.
Organizers say this was the largest turnout in the program's history with more than one thousand people attending.
