Our Mission & Sponsors

Our Mission

Reducing health disparities that adversely affect African American men residing in Dane County, Wisconsin.

Men of color often face grim health statistics and must cope with obstacles related to education, socioeconomic status, and safety which impacts their overall health. One clearly defines factor contributing to the health disparities is that African American men are less likely both to get preventive care and to have access to quality health care when they get sick.

RLWA aims to achieve this mission through a cycle of outreach events that target chronic health conditions specific to diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, prostate cancer and memory loss. These core values support the Healthy People 2020 Plan, which highlights the importance of addressing social determinants of health by “creating social and physical environments that promote good health for all.”.

The overarching goals of RLWA are to ensure that residents living in under-represented communities, who bear the heaviest burden of disease and poor health status, have the opportunity to live fuller, healthier lives. Through community dialog and hosting culturally specific activities, the organization reinforces healthy lifestyles and supports healthy opportunities for African American men living in Dane County.

We target chronic healthconditions specific to diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, prostate cancer andmemory loss. These core values support the Healthy People 2020 Plan, which highlights the importance of addressing social determinants of health by “creating social and physical environments that promote good health for all”.
