Gay Men's Health Workshop

Posted By on Wed, Mar 7, 2012 at 11:00 AM


Free blood pressure screenings and personalized diet planning are just a couple of the services to be offered at a Gay Men's Health Workshop on Wednesday, March 7th at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).

Levi Collins, a nursing student from Southwest Tennessee Community College, is hosting the event, which will also include discussions on maintaining holistic health as a gay man, recommendations for STD testing and immunizations, leading causes of death among men and MSM (men who have sex with men), and prevention factors associated with these causes.

The event begins at 4 p.m. with blood pressure screenings. The health discussion will start at 5:30 p.m., and diet planning will occur between 6:30 and 9 p.m. Those who wish to have their diets analyzed should bring in a food journal of what they've eaten over the past few days.
