Health Screenings at Barbershops This Saturday

Share this post

Barbershops in a dozen Indiana cities this Saturday including Gary are hosting a special event. The Indiana Commission on the Social Status of Black Males in conjunction with local commissions and community partners will provide health screenings at more than fifty barbershops to help African American men better understand cardiovascular diseases. Recent figures from the Indiana Department of Health show African American men have the highest mortality rate of any group in Indiana, and also suffer from prostate cancer at a higher level in Indiana than any other racial or ethnic group.  For more information follow this link, http://www.in.gov/icssbm/2378.htm.
