The show is committed to helping to communicate about issues related to health - especially for men. Recently the news reported that Washington, DC has an HIV/AIDS rate higher than West Africa. Diabetes and prostate cancer are two additional killers. I don't want to hear the doctor say, "Sir if you would have come in 6 months ago, we would have been able to do something about that." Our featured guests tonight are representatives from The African American Health Program (AAHP) - http://www.onehealthylife.org/ - was created and funded in 1999 by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The mission of AAHP is to eliminate health disparities and improve the number and quality of years of life for African Americans and people of African descent in Montgomery County. The program focuses on six major areas which include infant mortality, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, oral health, cardiovascular disease and specific cancers. Included in the services are outreach, health education, support groups and nurse case management services. While the program's offerings are available to all interested residents, the focus audience is the African American/Black residents of the county. The program is staffed by Registered Nurses, Health Educators and Community Outreach Workers. Join us for this show to get information, learn more about signs, symptoms, what you can do and additional resources. If you don't listen for you...do it for the family.
