Reducing Health Disparities

It's simply a life and death matter and we will continue shinning the spotlight on this issue from a broader public health perspective.

Restore Trust in Medicine

To improve the health of African-American men, we believe in addressing face-to-face the lack trust in the health-care system.

Revitalize Black Communities

The distrust in the healthcare system keeps Black men from seeking care requires a significant shift in the culture of wellness.

Our Men’s Heath & Education Center

The RLWA Men’s Health & Education Center, located inside of Madison’s largest Black barbershop JP Hair Design, is a new innovative health model for reducing health disparities and improving the Social & Health Conditions of Black men in Dane County. In building a solid foundation for this health model, it is our hope to replicate this type of facility nationwide.
