In recognition of National Men’s Health Month, the Gift of Life and its medical partners provided free critical healthcare screenings to more than 115 medically underserved men at the first June screening site in Port Arthur.
Saving Lives One Screening at a Time
Gift of Life gratitude to our extraordinary physicians, Bodo Brauer, MD and Moses E. Wilcox, MD, who discussed the significance of test results and healthy lifestyle practices.
Clients also received educational information and access to additional healthcare resources, with referral to local clinics for further medical care, if needed.
Port Arthur Mayor Deloris “Bobbie” Prince and Jefferson County Commissioner Michael Sinegal greeted clients and spoke with them about the importance of preventive medical care.
Essential Healthcare Screenings
Clients received a full panel of healthcare screenings, including PSA blood testing (prostate cancer screening), cholesterol, blood pressure, blood glucose, Hepatitis C and HIV.
Volunteers taught clients about healthy eating habits, skin cancer, mental health and more.
