Men’s health will be the focus of a free informational event on Saturday (June 16) at El Camino Hospital’s Los Gatos Campus, 815 Pollard Road. Topics include sleep apnea and enlarged prostates.

At this fair, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., men can discuss their health with experts in a variety of specialities including cardiac care, electrophysiology, chiropractic car, ear, nose, throat, gastroenterology, internal medicine, kidney stone treatment, radiation oncology, orthopedics, podiatry, prostate cancer, urology and more.

There will be two lectures presented by board-certified physicians:
