Black Men & Misconceptions presents: Focusing on Well-Being

An exploration of best practices to encourage Black men and boys to lead healthy lifestyles.

Sun, May 28, 2023 6:00-8:00 PM CDT

Freshair Boutique 542 A Academy Road Winnipeg, MB

Many Black men and boys are misinformed about how to approach healthy living. In the many lives of Black men and boys, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and excessive smoking and alcohol consumption lead to unhealthy lifestyles, leading to various medical complications. For many Black men and boys, it is more about knowing how to live a healthy life versus the will not to live healthily, which prevent them from making better health choices. Compounded with the lack of understanding is the stark reality of Black males contracting diseases such as prostate cancer, diabetes, and kidney disease. Many medical studies have found that Black men in North America are 60% more likely to contract these diseases than white men. And if left untreated, Black men and boys are at higher risk of dying from these illnesses. Although seeing a medical doctor for regular check-ups is an option for many Black men and boys, most of them experience the inability to be vulnerable and share medical concerns with a medical professional because of the feeling of not being taken seriously. Also, many Black men and boys commonly experience anti-Blackness and gender biases among many non-Black healthcare professionals. These experiences lead to unawareness of their health status, and they are less likely to address any possible medical concerns. Consequently, many Black males are less likely to find a medical professional they can trust and miss out on the opportunity to know their health status before health complications arise.

What can be done to encourage Black men and boys to choose healthier living habits?

On May 28th, 2023, The Barbershop Talks Series (BST) will host a two-hour event to give space for Black men and boys to share and search for ways to explore best practices to lead healthy lifestyles. This event encourages an “uncomfortable to get comfortable” dialogue to support an positive lifestyle changes among many Black men and boys.
