Wahoo! Prostate Health Checks in a tent! Sign me up!
Maybe you could take advantage of this opportunity, then share the experience with Jeremy Newman's listeners. That way, more guys will go the tent and get the screening, especially since it's free. Right?!
I am so there! I'll even video tape it and put it on youtube!
but seriously folks (guys!) prostate exams are vey important and can save your life!!!
Gary, thanks, but no thanks. I know you mean well but I'm not sure this would be the right way go.
