A free community program designed specifically for men to provide education and awareness on a number of health issues is set for TAMC’s A.R. Gould Memorial Hospital..

This third annual Men’s Health Seminar will be held in TAMC's conference center on Tuesday, June 13, beginning at 5:30 p.m, featuring a new format and new presenters.

The free event begins with dinner, followed by presentations by three TAMC providers. Each of the three sessions will include a question and answer portion, allowing free discussion for participants with the experienced providers.  This seminar provides an opportunity for men, especially those 40 and older, could come together – with their spouses and partners if they wish – to learn about common health issues.


TAMC Urologist Richard Leidinger will be discussing the risk factors for bladder cancer and how you can lower your risk.  The talk will also include recognizing potential symptoms of bladder cancer and how it is treated.


In the Chainsaws, Freight Trains and Other Sounds in the Night presentation, George Montee, PA-C, from TAMC Sleep Medicine Services will present common signs and symptoms of sleep apnea, followed by a brief overview of diagnosing and treating the condition.



Wrapping up the evening will be a presentation by Dr. Jared Kohlbacher, a surgical podiatrist with TAMC Orthopedic Services.  He will discuss changes people find in their feet, including bone spurs, bunions and Hallux Rigidus, as well as both surgical and non-surgical treatments for foot conditions.

The Men’s Health Seminar takes place on June 13 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the TAMC Conference Center, located on the second floor of the East Annex at the hospital.  Men and their spouses or significant others are invited to take part in the event, which includes dinner and dessert.  While the conference is free, pre-registration is required.  Space is limited.
