Black Barbershop Outreach Program - Men's Health

The Diabetic Amputation Prevention Foundation launched The Black Barbershop Outreach Program in December 2007 to address the at-risk African American male population throughout the country for cardiovascular disease. During the program volunteers have measured blood pressures and screened for diabetes in over 38 cities across the country

Black owned barbershops represent a cultural institution that regularly attracts large numbers of black men and provides an environment of trust and an avenue to disseminate health education information.
