Health behavior among African American men the subject of May 2 lecture

Apr. 29, 2014, 1:41 PM

Enjoy a light breakfast and coffee as Leah Alexander, assistant professor at Meharry Medical College, and Raymond Mitchell, director of educational activities for the Association of Tennessee Alphamen, share their experience as collaborators in a community-engaged research effort to understand health behavior among African American men in Tennessee.

The event is scheduled from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Friday, May 2, at the Hadley Park Community Center, 1039 28th Ave. N., in Nashville.

Data has shown that African American men, especially those living in Tennessee, suffer from numerous health disparities. While often believed to be “difficult to reach” by health care providers and researchers, the presenters will share their success using novel technology to collect data from an interesting group of African American males and provide an overview of their research findings.
