Denver 7 anchor Adam Hammond is participating in No Shave November for men’s health awareness.

Doctors at UCHealth - Family Medicine - A.F. Williams say one of the most important things you can do for your health is a yearly physical.

That screening provides an opportunity for doctors to track your health and vital statistics from year to year and helps healthcare providers find any abnormalities or challenges to your health before they become more serious.

These yearly visit and screenings are so important they’re typically covered by many insurance plans.

UCHealth Dr. Corey Lyon says different screenings are required for different ages and can be based on risk factors. 

Adam is looking into men's health issues all November. Find out more on his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, and you can follow along on social media with #AdamsBeardWatch.
