Men's health

Black men continue to have substantially lower life expectancy at birth than Black women and White women and men. AAHP understands that Black men face unique obstacles to achieving good health. Special consideration and emphasis are placed on engaging Black men with programming specific to their needs. At Brother 2 Brother Talks, Black men gather and discuss their lives and their health in a non-judgmental environment with the guidance of a healthcare professional. AAHP’s Brother 2 Brother Talks are held at partnering organizations—often churches—that promote the event to their constituents, which helps to ensure that outreach and promotion are at maximum levels. AAHP's Brother 2 Brother Talks have been groundbreaking in terms of reaching out and forging connections with Black men in the County. 

Are you an African American man who wants to learn everything you can about living happier, healthier, and longer? AAHP wants to see you at the next Brother 2 Brother Talk. AAHP's Brother 2 Brother Talks provide an opportunity for Black men from across Montgomery County to come together to openly discuss their health and their lives in enlightening conversations moderated by health professionals. Attendees can enjoy free food demonstrations as well as FREE health screenings that typically cost hundreds of dollars. Screenings include checks for Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure, cholesterol, and A1C, among others. A Q & A session will provide further insights.
