Addressing Health Issues in Our Community
The Men’s Club has long been intent on helping to educate members of our community about the health challenges facing older adults as well as highlighting the resources available to meet those challenges. For years that commitment has been reflected through the many health care support groups sponsored or supported by our club. Details of the current support groups are set forth in the box at the right along with contact information for anyone seeking more details.
In recent years, the Club’s committment has expanded:
On the second Monday each month, we sponsor our “Options for Health Choices” seminar in partnership with South Bay Hospital, Tampa General Hospital and Moffit Cancer Center. featuring presentations by local physicians and other health professionals. This event is usually held in Room 3 of SCC Community Hall and takes place from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.Starting in 2018, the Club has joined with area hospitals and the South Shore Coalition for Mental Health and Aging to present a Health Information Fair. In 2018 more than 800 area residents strolled through Community Hall to visit with more than 40 exhibitors offering a wide range of health care services to the community.
