Albany -- South Georgia men can get free health screenings and Doctor's advice Saturday at Albany Technical College.

The Third Annual Men's Health Summit will offer free blood pressure, prostate, cholesterol, body mass and glucose screenings.

Southwest Georgia men are less likely to get health check-ups than women, which can lead to health problems. Dr. James Couch, chief of the Georgia Department of Community Health said "Six out of ten men have some major health problem. The fact that they have not tried to address it is really a decision they have to make."

 Actor Robert Hooks will be at the men's health summit. The 67 year old Hooks says he believes in the healthy men's lifestyle. "Go to the Doctor. The wifes and the sisters and the mothers do, but the fathers don't, and the men don't, and they should."

The Men's Health Summit begins at 7:30 Saturday morning, and continues through two O-clock, at Albany Technical College.
