The Jewish Hospital - Mercy Health Continues its Speaker Series at the Mayerson JCC on Tuesday, July 12 with a Discussion on Men's Health

Mercy Health - Cincinnati, which provides advanced, quality, compassionate care in your neighborhood through its care network, announces that The Jewish Hospital - Mercy Health's speaker series continues at the Mayerson JCC on Tuesday, July 12, with a discussion on men's health. The Mayerson JCC is located at 8485 Ridge Road, Cincinnati 45236.

Join us for wine, appetizers and a relaxed and interactive discussion that will give you a better understanding of prevention and diagnosis of prostate cancer, as well as tips for maintaining a healthy prostate.

As men age, prostate health becomes even more important. Prostate cancer, one of the most common cancers among men, is most prevalent in men over the age of 50. Ethnicity and family history also play a part and members of the Jewish community with Ashkenazi lineage have an increased risk of prostate cancer.

Board-certified urologist Jeffrey Zipkin, MD will lead the presentation and question and answer session afterward. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with appetizers and wine, followed by the program, which runs from 6-7 p.m. The event is free but space is limited. Please make a reservation (required) to reserve your spot by visiting https://www.mayersonjcc.org/senior-center/jewishmercyspeakerseries/.
