Men Encouraging Health Awareness
NPR had a story on the 100 Black Men of Atlanta who did a project to raise health awarness in their community. It is a good project, with the most interesting piece of it, in my opinion, being the PR campaign. They are raising awareness by having prominent black men go to various places and speak on their positive experiences of getting diagnosed and being treated for their various conditions (high cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.). The goal is that these respected me will inspire both men and women to be more conscious about their health.
I’m not saying this is a new tactic or concept, but I do think it can work and is worth a try.
…and they say any group comprised of of black men is a bad thing…
