    July 15, 2019, Upland, CA. – San Antonio Regional Hospital held their annual Health & Hot Rods car show and men’s health event on June 22 on the hospital grounds. This half-day event encourages men to become more involved in their own health while enjoying a backdrop of great classic cars.

    Guests took advantage of free preventive screenings given on site including blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, and BMI (body mass index). Cardiologist Roger Duber, DO talked about heart health during his presentation “Keep Firing on All Cylinders.” Bhaveshkumar Patel, MD, Gastroenterologist, shared tips on preventing colon cancer with “Maintain Your Exhaust System.” Attendees enjoyed a continental breakfast and lunch, opportunity prize drawings, a live band from RockStars of Tomorrow, and of course a fabulous car show and contest.

    Over 100 cars were entered into the car show, with a crowd of over 250 guests. Best of Show honors went to Greg Hahs for his 1959 Goggomobil Dart, one of only three in the United States, and the only Goggomobile still operational. The mini car holds just 5 gallons of fuel, and is highly efficient, getting 50 mpg! The Most Original trophy went to Dan Campos for his 1954 Ford Customline, while the Best Modified award went to Richard Nehas for a 1966 Dodge Coronet.

    San Antonio Regional Hospital holds its Health & Hot Rods event each year during June—the nationally observed Men’s Health Month. Statistics show that many men still do not receive important preventive screenings and care. The event encourages men to learn more about their health and to seek routine tests that can help prevent significant and chronic health problems down the road.
