“As men, our health is critical,” said AHD Director Dr. David Rose. “But often, men do not have the resources and assistance we need to meet our own health goals. I invite Alexandria men to join me at the Men’s Health Empowerment Expo and leave the day with the tools we need to lead long, healthy lives.”
