TRIMMING HEALTH INEQUITY:
Barbershops and Beauty Salons as Trusted Partners
Wednesday, June 17, 2020
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
Dr. Stephen B. Thomas, Dir. UMD,
School of Public Health
Center for Health Equity
Racial and ethnic health inequities and a history of systemic racism continue to promote distrust in our health system. Despite current advances in medicine, communities of color are significantly more likely to suffer from certain health conditions — obesity, diabetes, cancer, and now the Coronavirus pandemic.
Barbershops and beauty salons have long been trusted gathering places. Dr. Stephen Thomas and the Health Advocates In-Reach & Research (H.A.I.R.) Program use the strength of this trusted relationship to bring critical health screenings and information out into the community. Research and experimentation are proving this method of outreach and education is working. Learn how barbershops and beauty salons help to save lives before and after Covid-19.
