African American males today are experiencing a health crisis. Many of these health issues are preventable and treatable through proper exercise and diet. Our motivation is to help decrease these numbers, and make Madison a place where not only African American men are healthy, but the entire African American community is thriving as a whole.
The RLWA Men’s Health & Education Center, located inside of Madison’s largest Black barbershop JP Hair Design, is a new innovative health model for reducing health disparities, and improving the Social & Health Conditions of Black men in Dane County. In building a solid foundation for this health model, it is our hope to replicate this type of facility nationwide.
