Organizers of a men’s health event Thursday said it give will give attendees a chance to improve their health and their golf game.
"Less than half of all men have seen their primary doctor in the last year, despite being at higher risk for heart disease and some cancers simply for being a man," said Dr. Christopher Harkin, family medicine physician at Meriter Stoughton. "If men are going to avoid the clinic, we'll happily meet them at the golf course."
Tee Up for Men's Health will be at Blackhawk Country Club and include golf swing analysis, casual conversation with a variety of specialists from Meriter Medical Group, Meriter-UnityPoint Health said.
The event includes a three-course dinner and a chance to win $5,000 during a putting contest. It runs from 6-8 p.m. The putting contest begins after dinner.
