Free 100% Men’s Health Screen at Arkansas Urology’s North Little Rock campus

Arkansas Urology and Epoch Men’s Health will observe National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month with the 10th annual Kickoff to Men’s Health: The Big Screen Event on Thursday, Sept. 25, from 5-8 p.m. The event will offer men the opportunity to receive a potentially lifesaving preventive screening at Arkansas Urology’s North Little Rock campus, located at 4200 Stockton Drive.

“Each man will receive what we call our FREE “100% Men’s Health” screening,” said Dr. Tim Langford, president of Arkansas Urology. “This typically involves very comprehensive lab work and/or an examination that includes a free prostate exam. We also analyze men’s bodies for potential problems with their heart, blood pressure, metabolism (including diabetes), vitamin and nutrient levels (including Iron, B-12 and D), urinalysis (for dehydration, kidney function and bladder cancer), LH, FSH, hormones (including testosterone, estrogen, thyroid function and prolactin) DNA tests for hypercoagulability, screening for potential internal bleeding and much more.”

New this year, Arkansas Urology and Epoch Men’s Health will be giving away a flat screen TV every 15 minutes to men who register and participate in the screening (about the amount of time for the screen itself). To schedule an appointment, please call 501-219-8900. Screening results may be mailed to participants or you may receive a phone call with specific results from a healthcare provider.

At last year’s event, 373 men were screened for prostate cancer. Of those, 20 were found to have elevated PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels and/or abnormal physical exams. These men have been encouraged to schedule follow-up appointments with their primary-care physicians or urologists.

“Arkansas Urology is dedicated to hosting an annual screening event that will have a positive impact on men’s health outcomes in central Arkansas,” said E. Scot Davis, CEO of Arkansas Urology. “By offering free screenings, we hope to help prevent losing another Arkansan to prostate cancer.”
