Michael J. McCurdy - Founder/Publisher -

New York, NY, April 13, 2004 - ( The Honorable Rudolph Guiliani, former Mayor of New York has signed on as Spike TV's "Check Up or Check Out" chairperson. In addition to Mayor Giuliani, Spike TV is assembling an advisory board that includes leading members of the medical community, medical/health advocates and celebrities to assist in bringing issues concerning men's health to the media forefront.

"Every man should have an annual physical examination too many men remain reluctant to visit the doctor on a regular basis, apparently believing that they can afford to wait until they don't feel well," says Mayor Guiliani. "In my case, a routine physical just may have saved my life, since that is how my doctor discovered that I had prostate cancer. Because of my annual physical, I found out early enough to treat it. Today, I am healthy. I applaud Spike TV for taking the lead with "Check Up or Check Out" and I join them in urging men not to let a year go by without a thourough physical examination."
