DETROIT (WXYZ) — With the COVID-19 pandemic shining a light on health disparities, especially among people of color, and triggering a greater mortality rate in men, as well as causing countless individuals to delay routine health care services, preventative health care is of high concern. To continue offering accessible health care, The MIU Men’s Health Foundation will host its 10th annual Men’s Health Event on Saturday, September 26, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a new approach in a new environment to comply with current health and safety standards.
Metro Detroit-area men 18 years and older with or without insurance are encouraged to get in the driver’s seat and take control of their health during this event, with free drive-through screenings offered at the Michigan State Fairgrounds. Services will include vital screenings, a bloodwork panel, flu vaccinations, COVID-19 nasal swab and antibody testing, and HIV testing. All tests
