Quick! Name 3 Things You Know About Vascular Disease

Quick! Name 3 Things You Know About Vascular Disease

Vascular disease may not on the tip of every man’s tongue, but it should be. Along with stroke, it’s the No. 1 killer of U.S. men — yet too many guys don’t know how it works, let alone ways to prevent it.

Fortunately, according to vascular surgeon Dr. Michael Singh, there’s good news: Despite the wealth of fear surrounding the condition, it turns out vascular disease is highly treatable — even avoidable — when you know the facts and are willing to make some simple lifestyle changes.

So, do you have your notebook handy? In this week’s video clip – the third in our four-week men’s health series – Dr. Singh talks about the top three vascular conditions, plus what can guys who are already affected can do to slow down disease progression.



Eighth Annual Men’s Health Day is Sept. 23

When it comes to your health, being a little proactive can go a long way; that’s why the University of Rochester Medical Center is inviting men to its eighth annual Men’s Health Day on Sept. 23. Geared toward men ages 45 and older, the day-long festivities will present a unique (non-nagging!) opportunity to learn about health topics ranging from cardiovascular wellness and prostate health to cataract surgery and sleep disorders.

Want to register for this year’s Men’s Health Day event? Act fast! In 2010, Men’s Health Day sold out, attracting more than 400 men.

In addition to terrific speakers, the day will also include health screenings, hands-on demonstrations, giveaways, healthy snacks, breakfast and lunch, and deluxe raffle prizes. New this year, attendees also can receive an individual analysis of their “gait,” since the way you walk can predict the likelihood of a fall. A flu shot clinic also will be available.

Tickets are on sale now and can be reserved by calling (585) 275-2838. Admission is $15 and includes everything: breakfast, lunch, giveaways, prizes, and free parking at the Hyatt Regency Rochester (125 Main Street).
