NEWARK, NJ – September 26, 2013 - Policemen, firemen and first responders are invited to meet N.Y. Giants
Super Bowl Champion George Martin during a tailgate party and free preventive
health event, which is being sponsored by Newark Beth Israel Medical Center
(NBIMC). The event will be held at the Maplewood Country Club, 28 Baker
Street in Maplewood on Monday, October 21.
“This is our second year hosting Men’s Health Night with The
Beth,” John A. Brennan, MD, MPH, President and Chief Executive Officer
of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children's Hospital of New
Jersey and Executive Vice President of Barnabas Health. The idea to focus
on first responders came when Hurricane Sandy hit, it reminded us of the
value of fire, police and first responders and the importance of them
being healthy at all times to respond to emergencies.”
Dr. Brennan said the medical center decided this was an excellent opportunity
to launch a men’s health initiative, similar to the Women’s
Health Initiative begun earlier. By using a sports venue, it encouraged
greater participation. Last year, more than 100 men attended the Men’s
"Monday Night Football and Men’s Health Night with The Beth"
begins at 6:30 pm. Men will have an opportunity to hear George Martin
followed by presentations from four physicians from Newark Beth Israel
Medical Center, followed by health screenings, massages and health information
and finally Monday Night Football and the tailgate event.
The evening will continue at 8:30 pm, participants can cheer as they watch
a broadcast of the National Football League's (NFL) New York Giants
versus the Minnesota Vikings game, along with free refreshments, prizes
Mr. Martin, a legendary defensive lineman, who played for the N.Y. Giants
from 1975 to 1988 will speak with participants. He was team captain in
January 1987 during Giant’s Super Bowl XXI victory over the Denver
Broncos. Mr. Martin’s presence at the event combined with the screenings
