Don’t Miss This Fellas: Men’s Health Tailgating Challenge At The Rent Friday Night

by Categorized: notebook Tagged: , Date:

Comptroller Kevin Lembo, the University of Connecticut Health Center and the University of Connecticut Football program on Friday will host a Men’s Health Tailgating Challenge at Rentschler Field in East Hartford as part of “Man Up.” The challenge will be held at FanFest between Gates A and B from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Man Up is a statewide men’s health campaign to raise awareness about health disparities between men and women. Friday’s Men’s Health Tailgating Challenge will be a pre-game event — leading up to the UConn vs. Pittsburgh game kickoff — featuring free health screenings, a Wii Sports competition with prizes and other activities to raise awareness about men’s need to Man Up and take charge of their health.

    Statins, prostate exams, having damage to the skin from the sun removed, of course blood pressure meds, these are no joke. Take care of these and after the drinking get that colonoscopy, Love the Jerk. I had two uncles die in their early 50’s by not taking these precautions. Just do it! Be well!

    This is an awesome tailgate idea but I have to think…is a UConn tailgate the right place for this? I really dont want to stop by at 730 when I have been eating tailgate food and drinking a few soda pops :)
