Since its inception, our annual Mens Health Symposium: Men Reaching Men has grown in size and influence. Attendance at this awareness-building event jumped by 40 percent in two years. The event has hosted well known entertainers and professional athletics such as MLB Hall of Famer Lou Brock.

Once a local gathering, the event has expanded to a full day of activities open to men throughout the Bay Area. The number of different screenings offered has jumped from one to six and the number of men who complete the screenings has exploded. At the first symposium, only 20 percent of men attending completed the one available screening. In 2016, close to 90 men were screened for Prostate Cancer and cardiovascular indicators. These screenings help identify issues that may affect mens longevity.
