Informational booths will be available on a variety of health topics pertinent to men's health.

A soup and sandwich dinner will be served from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the school lunchroom.

The evening program will kick off at 6 p.m. with a presentation on "Cardiology: What It Means to You," followed by a panel discussion featuring local medical experts. Local on-air personality, Rick Youngbauer, will be the panel moderator, as well as master of ceremonies.
