Putting off a doctor’s appointment could cut years off your life. It’s a message Dr. Charles Modlin is working to get across to men as the Cleveland Clinic Minority Men’s Health Fair celebrates its 15th anniversary.

Thursday night, hundreds of doctors and medical professionals will be at Cleveland Clinic’s main campus performing dozens of free health screenings. Some of the tests and topics include: Blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, prostate cancer and sickle cell. The event runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event is open to men of all ages, races and backgrounds.

“Men who are not healthy don’t have the ability to reach their full potential,” Dr. Modlin said.

Dr. Modlin, a urologist, is the director of Cleveland Clinic’s Minority Men’s Health Center.
