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.
