Justin will have a booth featuring his book Saturnalia at this year's Get Healthy Pasadena, an annual health conference hosted by Men Educating Men About Health (MEMAH) and Pasadena City College (PCC). Justin is the Secretary of MEMAH's board of directors. The event offers FREE health screenings for men and women over 18.

In addition to screenings for diabetes, prostate, BMI, hearing, vision, dental, blood pressure, cholesterol, and stroke, for the first time Get Healthy will feature three additional screenings:

  • SureTouch, a non-invasive, radiation-free breast screening (B. Smith L.Ac. - Pasadena Breast Wellness Center; Sponsored by Women Educating Women About Health)
  • Ultrasound for liver and kidney, with a liver specialist on hand to provide analysis and advice based on your ultrasound (Dr. Shafiei - West Coast Ultrasound Institute; Dr. Mena - Huntington Medical Research Institutes)
  • PULS test, which detects the #1 cause of heart attacks: unstable cardiac lesion ruptures (G. McLane - GD Biosciences; Dr. Jacobi - Healthy Living Medical)

In addition to the great local restaurants who have provided food at Get Healthy in previous years and will be returning - such as Whole Foods, The Corner Bakery, Buca di Beppo, Stonefire Grill, Heirloom, Bristol Farms, Robin’s Woodfire BBQ and more - this year’s Get Healthy food court will include local favorite Tender Greens and a cooking demo by California Pizza Kitchen. Lunch will be provided, courtesy of the Food Court, to participants who complete 5 or more screenings.

Get Healthy’s Speaker Series includes 3 seminars this year. A men’s only talk on Prostate & Sexuality will begin at 9 a.m. At 10, top medical doctors who are also on MEMAH’s board of directors (including Jerome Lisk, MD, Joshua Jacobi, MD, and Mauro Zappaterra, MD) and the Women’s Advisory Board (Beauty Swe, MD) will discuss Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, the heart, pain and “Improving a Healthy Attitude”.
