Going Stronger Longer #2080
“Going Stronger Longer #2080” is a collaborative initiative to change young men of color’s (YMOC) attitudes, perceptions, and understanding of the healthcare system by making it more appealing. This project identifies YMOC strengths and enhances existing talents. Using an integrated arts method, assessment findings will determine an individual learning health plan that includes an artistic family history tree to understand their own strengths and obstacles to a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition professionals are part of the team to educate and engage the YMOC on proper nutrition as well as exposing them to healthy options. Addressing the health disparities impacting YMOC is the major goal.
