Campy Russell to Participate in Cleveland Clinic’s Men’s Minority Health Fair

CLEVELAND, Apr. 11th - The Cleveland Cavaliers consider health and wellness as one of our main community outreach focus areas. On Thursday, April 19th the Cleveland Clinic will host their annual Minority Men's Health Fair from 5:00-8:00pm. This free health fair will be held to address healthcare disparity issues associated with minority men.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and is two times more prevalent in minority men, particularly African-American men, who are also twice as likely to die from this disease. The event will provide the community with access to a variety of information and services including screenings for prostate cancer, glaucoma, diabetes & hypertension.

Cavaliers Legend Campy Russell, Browns alumnus Reggie Rucker and Browns linebacker Andre Davis will be in attendance.
