A growing number of men living in the Tampa Bay area don't have access to regular health care screenings and services. The reasons are numerous: lack of insurance, awareness, access to doctors, etc. 

To combat this Moffitt Cancer Center and nearly 80 other community organizations have partnered for the 18th annual Men’s Health Forum which offers free health screenings, such as blood pressure, cholesterol, HIV/AIDS, skin cancer and more, to men who are 18 years and older and uninsured, underinsured, or do not have a regular health care provider. 

The forum will also provide health education workshops, fitness demonstrations and more than 50 community support services exhibitors. 

Admission and parking are free. Breakfast and lunch are available while supplies last.

The Men’s Health Forum is a bilingual event held in English and Spanish with Haitian Creole-speaking volunteers also available on site.
