UAMS Health Event to Be Held March 18 at Saint Mark Baptist

In a nod to the NCAA basketball tournament, UAMS’ 12th St. Health and Wellness Center  will present “March Man-ness,” where UAMS students and health professionals will offer free health screenings and health information to the public at its fourth annual event focusing on men’s health.

Free blood pressure checks, glucose and cholesterol screenings, physical examinations and free HIV testing using a mouth swab will be offered to both men and women at the March 18 event. Males also may have blood drawn to check testosterone levels and prostate sensitive antigen (PSA) for prostate cancer screenings.

“March Man-ness” will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at St. Mark Baptist Church, 5722 W. 12th Street.
