The Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program
The Black Barbershop health Outreach Program is the only national barbershop based initiative whose mission is to address health disparities among African American men. Since its inception in 2006, the program has screened over 30,000 men for diabetes and high blood pressure. Black Barbershop has been the inspiration for other similar programs across the country and around the world.
Based in Los Angeles, the program is retooling its outreach efforts to address the devastating effects the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the African American community by launching the Black Barbershop Wellness app. African American patients can now have access to health care provider that better understands their needs and concern through the Black Barbershop telemedicine portal.
It's all hands on deck! We see seeking health care providers, black owned barbershops and volunteers to join the digital health platform to save lives. Now you can see a black doctor, on your mobile devices
