Griffin sponsors health screenings for men

Griffin Hospital’s Health Initiative for Men invites men to receive free health screenings, earn some free games and take a chance to win a grill at its Second Annual Men’s Health Day set for Saturday, June 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Sports Center of Connecticut, 784 River Road in Shelton.

Held in recognition of Men’s Health Month, the event will feature a series of health information tables and free health screenings, including Prostate Specific Antigen blood test, blood sugar, blood pressure and Body Mass Index. In addition, Griffin Hospital physicians will be available to answer one-on-one health questions.

For each screening station completed, attendees can earn a “Play For Free” card from the Sport Center, which can be used at most of the Center’s attractions such as the driving range, mini golf and batting cages. Attendees who complete five or more stations will receive a $25 activity card for the Center.

Attendees will also be entered into a drawing for a Char-Broil grill worth $399.
