EMMC Seminar to Address Men’s Health Concerns


(Bangor, Maine) – According to the National Institutes of Health, almost all older men have a weak urine stream or have some trouble with leaking, dribbling, or starting urination. In an effort to provide education about these and other common men’s health issues, EMMC’s men’s health experts are holding a free seminar that is open to the public on Tuesday, March 10 in Bangor.

“We will cover a wide range of men’s health topics, including prostate issues like benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) that can cause incontinence and other problems,” says William Sturrock, MD, a men’s health consultant at EMMC Urologic Surgery of Maine. “We will discuss the use of testosterone, how health problems can affect intimacy, and more. Ultimately, we want to help men understand the nonsurgical and surgical treatment options that are out there and to know that there are solutions to their problems.”

Both men and women are invited to the seminar, which will begin at 5:30 pm at the Spectacular Event Center on Griffin Road in Bangor.

“Women are usually very aware of their partner’s health issues,” adds Dr. Sturrock.

“In fact, we find that women are often compelled to help their partner take those first steps toward finding a solution. That’s why we encourage women and men to attend the seminar together.”

Dinner and a presentation will be followed by a question and answer session. Registration is required by visiting menshealth.emmc.org or by calling 947-0469.
