Detroit Health Screening Tests

Plum Health at the Detroit Men's Health Event

This week, we were at Ford Field for the Men's Health event. The event was really fun and really well organized. There were stations to have blood pressure checks, EKGs, Vision Screening, Vein Examinations, Skin Examinations to screen for Cancer, and several other tables with information about follow up care and the like.

We were happy to be invited and we met with several Detroit men and women in need of excellent primary care services. There were also some fun moments - they had a giant colon set up to promote colorectal cancer screening tests, like a colonoscopy. Also, we were able to go onto the playing field of the Detroit Lions, throw around a football and kick a few field goals! This was really cool and a nice perk of volunteering at the event.

Finally, if you’re looking for high-quality primary care services for you and your family, we’d be happy to help you with this sort of care. You see, at this type of event, conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes can be diagnosed, but the most important part is the follow up care after the diagnosis to make sure the condition is treated appropriately, well-managed, and ideally reversed with the right diet and lifestyle modifications.

Thanks for reading and have a great day,
