Baldwin Branch Men’s 2017 Conference

Elizabethtown – Wednesday, September 13, through Sunday, September 17, the Laymen League of Baldwin Branch Missionary Baptist Church is sponsoring their 2017 men’s conference. Theme: “Empowering Men to Reach Men”. The highlight of the five-day conference is the men’s health seminar.

The Men’s Health Network (MHN) reports that men die at higher rates than women from the top 10 causes of death – heart… disease, cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, accidents, pneumonia and influenza, diabetes, suicide, kidney disease, and chronic liver disease and cirrhosis.

This was a very successful venture last year. Several men of the community took advantage of the seminar by asking appropriate questions and later attending a physician of their choosing for their initial annual physical exam. The effort this year is to reach fifty (50) additional men to have an impact on the reduction of male deaths in the local area. Screenings and other assessments will be available. The religious services are open to everyone. Men are especially invited to attend the health seminar.
