JERSEY CITY AND BEYOND – Noting the reluctance of many men to get regular medical check-ups, Assemblyman Charles Mainor (D-Hudson) is inviting fathers and their children to attend “Take Your Daddy to the Doctor,” an event geared at promoting better health maintenance among men.
“Many men will complain about an ailment, but refuse to go to the doctor. Whether machismo or stubbornness is to blame, we owe it to ourselves and our families to stay healthy,” said Mainor.
The event, sponsored by Assemblyman Mainor, the Jersey City Medical Center, the NAACP and the Urban League of Hudson County, will provide free medical check-ups to all dads accompanied by a child. The check-ups will be conducted by Jersey City Medical Center staff members.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Mary Bethune Center Parking Lot (across the street from the Mary Bethune Center), 140 Martin Luther King, Dr., Jersey City. There will be mobile arcade games to entertain the kids while their dads get their check-ups.
