Robert Klein Jr., of Ansonia, recently won a brand new iPad 6 in the Griffin Hospital’s Health Initiative for Men (HiM) Father’s Day drawing.
Klein’s daughter, Cameron, gave her dad a HiM Father’s Day card, which encourages men to get an annual physical and talk to their physicians about preventative health screenings. The card also directed recipients to a short online health survey which entered them into a drawing for the iPad and Home Depot gift cards.
The cards were distributed to elementary students in Ansonia, Derby, Seymour Shelton and Oxford. Cameron attends Mead School in Ansonia.
Griffin Hospital launched the HiM in 2011. The goal of this community-wide preventive healthcare effort is to influence men to see their physician annually, and to be screened for various diseases that respond better to treatment if detected early.
