Men’s Health the Focus of Shore Physicians Group’s Nov. 13 “Be Well Connected” Education Breakfast

In honor of Men’s Health Awareness Month, also known as Movember, Shore Physicians Group (SPG) is dedicating its November “Be Well Connected” education breakfast at Greate Bay Country Club to the topic of men’s health. The event will be held from 10 am to noon and will include a light breakfast. Greate Bay Country Club is located at 901 Somers Point-Mays Landing Rd., Somers Point, NJ. All guests who attend will be entered to win a complimentary haircut and close shave gift basket, valued at $100, from Gas Up Barber Shop & Shave Co. in Somers Point.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, men die on average five years earlier than women and are more prone to chronic illness. With greater awareness of the causes of this health disparity and more diligent attention to their health, men can potentially live longer, healthier lives.

Leading the program is SPG primary care physician Dr. Ulices Perez, who will focus on the unique health needs of men. Following Dr. Perez is SPG endocrinologist Dr. Matthew Corcoran, who will talk about low testosterone, which affects 1 in 4 men over age 30. Closing the event will be a discussion with Mike Costello of Gas Up Barber Shop & Shave Co. on men’s grooming.
