The Doris Ison Health Center was abuzz with contagious enthusiasm as men belted out lyrics to select songs in an energetic karaoke session. The excitement was all for CHI’s Men’s Health Fair. It was a joyous atmosphere of men coming together to advocate for and celebrate a shared commitment to a healthy lifestyle.  

The annual event, hosted by Community Health of South Florida, Inc. (CHI), brought together a diverse group of men eager to engage in fun activities with family and friends.  

Attendees enjoyed relaxing massages, engaging games of dominoes and basketball and the hit of the evening, the NBA draft on the big screen. They also had the opportunity to discover essential health resources such as prostate health education and testing, mental health support, colon health screenings, plus blood pressure and glucose screenings.  

CHI’s Executive Vice President and Chief Behavorial Health Officer, Jean D. Pierre, believes that offering health events like this to the community creates an opportunity for men to be conscious of their health.  

“By monitoring your physical and mental health, you gain valuable insights into your body’s needs.” He said. “Regular and preventative check-ups, screenings and self-awareness empower you to catch potential issues early, prevent future complications and allows you to take charge of your overall well-being.”  

Along with important health screenings and education, a handful of the guests also won raffles. Among the prizes were two signed basketballs by NBA legend, Glen Rice, Miami Heat tickets, a 40-inch TV and gas cards. 

The event showcased CHI’s continued dedication to provide accessible healthcare services to the South Florida Community.
