Keynote Speaker PA Senator Mike Regan, a leader for men’s fitness and nutrition education in Pennsylvania, says, “I am proud to be part of Men’s Health Awareness Month to help educate men throughout the Commonwealth on the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Investing in healthy choices such as proper nutrition, exercise, and regular medical check-ups is vital to deterring adverse health conditions. These simple wellness steps can pay lifelong dividends for a productive life.”

Wes Stepp, co-owner of Tastefully Fit TrimLine, says, “My journey to good health took many wrong turns, and I know the struggles men face in embracing healthy lifestyle choices. As a chef, I know good nutrition is the key to healthy living. As a father, son, and business owner, I’m compelled to take a lead in the health and wellness education conversation. Men need to be better caretakers of ourselves, get regular checkups, and do simple screenings that can help reduce our risk factors for heart attack and cancer.
