Barbershop Conversations

Project Title:
Barbershop Conversations: Convene, Converse, Commit Project

The project will convene volunteers for training on cultural humility and the art of conversation, organize an event for oriented volunteers to converse with men of color at barbershops, and encourage barbershop clients to commit to follow-up with additional conversations with clinicians after the event. This project ultimately aims to improve health communication among health care providers, community health workers, and male community residents of color, while simultaneously enhancing the sustainability of the barbershop health care model as a holistic community approach to improving health outcomes in men of color.
