Tesla S trip part of men’s health initiative

Drive For Men’s Health in the Orlando Sentinel

First, the car.

“The car is not cute,” said Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt. “If cars had catwalks, this car would steal the show.”

It’s an electric car. And if you are as uninformed as I was, your mental image of an electric car is that of a cute “Lovebug,” merrily putting along at 15 miles per kilowatt. That is not the Tesla S, which embodies “the grace and performance of a world-class athlete. Its sculpted form expresses a constant state of speed and motion,” says Franz von Holzhausen, it’s chief designer.

The car is cool.

And the car is the carrot, intended to lure men into listening to the message of National Men’s Health Week, which begins Monday and aptly concludes on Father’s Day. And on Thursday morning at Clermont’s South Lake Hospital, doctors Brahmbhatt and Sijo Parekattil will strap into the futuristic machine and begin an electrifying 1,100-mile, 23-hour journey to New York City, making nine stops in seven states to lead mini-meetings for lectures and discussions about men’s health.
