Men's Health Conference offered Saturday

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Phoebe Putney is offering a great way to show dad you love him this Father's Day-- by making sure he's in good health.

Their annual Men's Health Fair kicks off at Phoebe Healthworks at 8:00 Saturday morning. Over 100 volunteers will be there to offer free health screenings, educational booths and continental breakfast for any men that attend.

This year is all about hypertension, one of the leading contributing causes of death in the United States, particularly in the South.

"It's what you call a silent killer. It's also the precursor to heart attacks, stroke, liver damage. So, this year, we really want men to key in on how important it is to do something very simple, like check your blood pressure," said Darrell Sabbs of Phoebe Putney.

Phoebe's Chief Medical Officer Doug Patten will be the keynote speaker for the event.
