HEALTH FAIR COMING

new event coming 2020
ABOUT OUR EVENTS
"Permission To Talk is a fundraiser created by the Ol’Loreece Foundation to save and extend the lives of men by pairing much-needed health information with music and entertainment into an annual event."
A report from the Center for Disease Control says that women are 33% more likely than men to see a doctor for a medical problem. Plus, women survive men by more than five years on average, compared to just a one-year difference in 1920. The Men’s Health Network reports that men die at higher rates than women for all of the top 10 causes of death, from heart disease, to cancers, to cirrhosis.This is why the Ol’Loreece Foundation started this event.
We don’t think health education should mean attending a stuffy seminar filled with medical jargon. Our goal is to create awareness through an annual event that pairs easy-to-understand information with music and entertainment, putting a face on difficult topics and opening the door for men to speak about their health and well-being in a comfortable environment.
