87: Tackling Black Men’s Health

Despite decades of growing interest in improving Black men’s health and the health disparities affecting them, the health of Black men consistently ranks lowest across nearly all groups in the United States. As part of a Stories from Heart of Health event held in New York City in the middle of the U.N. General AssemblyJulius Johnson, DNP, RN, FNP-BC, a Nurse Practitioner, educator, and football coach, shared his stories and approaches supporting Black men’s health. By meeting them where they feel most confident – barbershops, sports fields, and churches, he embraces any event or touchpoint – like the cardiac arrest suffered mid-game by NFL player Damar Hamlin – as a teaching and trust-building moment to open the door to deeper conversations that help men of all ages take better care of themselves both on and off the field.
