Free Health Screenings Offered to Men on Hill
In an effort to promote Men’s Health Awareness Week, which takes place each year during the week that leads up to Father’s Day, Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) and Rep. Duke Cunningham (R-Calif.) are inviting fellow male Members and staffers to participate in free health screenings which will take place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday around Capitol Hill.
Participants will receive screenings for prostate cancer, blood pressure and cholesterol and learn why it’s important for men and boys to get annual check-ups to detect and prevent disease.
Screenings will take place on the House side on Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Room B-344 of the Rayburn Building and on the Senate side on Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Room 124 of the Hart Building.
