The Jackson Walk is Now African American Male Wellness Day – Saturday, April 6, 2024

The African American Male Wellness Day (AAWellness Day) is a dedicated day to prioritize and uplift the health and well-being of Black men across the country. Stemming from a rich history of over 20 years of community engagement and empowerment, the AAWellness Day seeks to address and reduce health disparities faced by African American men by providing critical resources, raising awareness, and fostering community collaboration.

Through a combination of FREE HEALTH screenings, community partners, and local civic leaders and community influencers, AA Wellness Day aims to educate men about the importance of regular doctor visits, understanding their health metrics, and cultivating a proactive approach to their overall well-being. The day not only serves as a vital touchpoint for health but also as a beacon of unity, strength, and a continued commitment to a brighter, healthier future for Black men and their families.
