About the African American Male Wellness Initiative

The National African American Male Wellness Initiative was established in 2004 to begin the process of empowering men to understand through prevention one can live longer. The awareness campaign is the largest Wellness Initiative of its kind in Central Ohio and has expanded to over 15 markets nationally including Los Angeles, Houston, Memphis, Atlanta, and Cleveland. 

The Wellness Initiative has provided tens of thousands of Black men free health screenings across the country, resulting in recognition from President Obama and the month of August being declared as African American Male Wellness Month in Ohio.
