Foothills Surgery Center wishes you and your loved ones a Happy Fathers’ Day! In honor of fathers and male role models everywhere, encourage the men in your lives to pay more attention to their health. Compared to women, men are more likely to participate in unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, drinking, and putting off regular checkups and needed medical care. Fathers’ Day serves as a reminder to us all not only to appreciate the men in our lives, but also to encourage them to stay healthy and live long. Click here to get started!
