TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The Tulsa Health Department and the Community Service Council’s Healthy Start programs are partnering to host a free Men’s Health Summit.

Former NFL player Spencer Tillman will deliver the keynote address at Saturday’s summit. Tillman is a Tulsa native and knows the importance of staying healthy from his years as a running back for the Houston Oilers and San Francisco 49ers.

Along with Tillman, guests will have the opportunity to ask local doctors questions during a panel discussion.

Reggie Ivey, COO of the Tulsa Health Department, says the summit brings local health agencies together to provide men the resources to set a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their family.

Although the summit’s target audience is men, activities are planned for the entire family including face-painting, a picnic and health screenings.
