Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2011
Jim Morris, Executive Director of Men Educating Men About Health (MEMAH), announced today that Pasadena Criminal Defense Attorney Bill Paparian has been called upon to serve on the Board of Directors of MEMAH. MEMAH is a non-profit organization created by a group of men dedicated to raising the awareness, importance and understating of men's health. MEMAH's mission is to empower men withthe knowledge of traditional treatment methods and bring forth alternative options available to them so that they can make informed decisions about their health care choices.
“We are very pleased to have Bill Paparian join our distinguished Board of Directors,” said Executive Director Jim Morris in making the announcement. “As a former Mayor
of Pasadena, prominent Criminal Defense Attorney, and well respected Armenian-American community leader, Bill Paparian is uniquely qualified to serve on our Board.”
Paparian was twice hospitalized in 2010 for complications associated with a benign enlarged prostate condition which required major surgery at Huntington Memorial
Hospital in Pasadena. He has fully recovered. “I hope that through my service on the MEMAH Board of Directors I can help raise the consciousness of men on the importance of paying closer attention to their health so that they do not have to endure what I did last year,” said former Pasadena Mayor Paparian on accepting his appointment.
MEMAH is partnering with the Pasadena Community Center to host a health fair exposition Get Healthy Pasadena, on Saturday, June 4, 2011 from 9:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.. The event location is Pasadena Community Center and extends to Pasadena Memorial Park, on the corner of Holly and Raymond. For more information got the the MEMAH website: http://memah.org/index.html
