Health and Wellness

African Americans traditionally have higher incidences of preventable diseases than their white counterparts. The 100 Health and Wellness Committee develops and implements programs designed to change these norms in an effort to eradicate healthcare disparities.

Barbershop High Blood Pressure Program
