The new Daily Male Men’s Health Clinic opens tomorrow at the Bermuda Industrial Union (BIU) building, offering free medical testing to males 60 for prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Among the goals are to provide for early detection, avenues to treatment, education, as well as to debunk unhealthy and unwarranted macho stigmata often associated with such illnesses among this high risk group, with particularly regard to Black men.
Armed with a team of volunteers, including renowned urologist, Dr Jonathan Mankanjuola, Daily Male will commence operations at 9 am. They are expecting to service up to 25 persons on a first come, first serve basis, but will reserve spaces at future offerings and/or assist in making provision for those unable to be seen on the day, to be examined via other means.
Stressed is the fact that the testing for prostate cancer will involve ‘finger-prick’ PSA testing, rather than more invasive blood-draws and digital rectal examinations.
Further, if diagnosed as high risk, Daily Male clients will be aided in obtaining further cost-free treatment at the hospital.
The free clinic is slated to operate on a monthly basis at various sporting clubs for a six-month initial period, with the hope of a continuance.
Beyond the initial offering the Daily Male is scheduled to provide further screenings at: St George’g Cricket Club (March 4th 2023 – St. George’s Cricket Club; Somerset Cricket Club (April 1st 2023); Warwick Workmen’s Club (May 6th 2023);
