It is no surprise that men are less willing than women to go to a doctor. This is true even for the most minor of medical conditions, and it is especially true when the medical concern is personal or intimate.

 

Nationally-renowned sportscaster and physician Dr. Jerry Punch, long-time ESPN motorsports and college sports announcer, wants men to get in the game and go to the doctor when they have a concern over their own health. Dr. Jerry Punch will discuss with your viewers:

* his encouragement of men to overcome their fear, low self-esteem, depression, isolation, and embarrassment over their health concerns

* the various reasons that men avoid going to the doctor even when they have a health concern

and * the importance of going to a doctor when men have questions about their health
