Healthy Friday: Men's Health

Fri, 08/21/2009 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm

Host Elissa Orlando

Statistically men in the U.S. die at a younger age than women for several reasons, including genetic and biologic factors. And men are not as likely to pay close attention to their health as women. On Friday, August 21 at 12 noon on AM1370/FM-HD91.5-2 Healthy Friday's host Elissa Orlando talks with two local experts about two conditions that men need to watch. Learn the warning signs and prevention tips for stroke, and learn about prostate health throughout mid-life. 
Also on Healthy Friday, the new book by a local authors discusses life, loss and "A Beautiful Sadness."
