about

The Black Barbershop
Health Outreach Program

Founded in 2006, The Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program is the only national barbershop based initiative whose mission is to address health disparities among African American men. Since its inception, the program has screened over 30,000 men for diabetes and high blood pressure. Black Barbershop has been the inspiration for other similar programs across the country and around the world. 

Based in Los Angeles, the program is retooling its outreach efforts to address the devastation the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the African American community by launching the online Black Barbershop Physician Network.  African American patients can now have access to a health care provider that better understands their needs and concerns through the Black Barbershop telemedicine portal. 

 

It’s all hands on deck! We are seeking health care providers, black owned barbershops and volunteers to join the digital health platform to save lives. Now you can see a black doctor, on your mobile device.

Screen, Educate and Refer.

The Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program made history by screening over 30,000 African American Men for diabetes and high blood pressure across the country. To date, it has been the largest effort of its kind to address health care disparities among African American men. A prostate cancer education and awareness program was also incorporated into our platform called PEP Talk, The Prostate Education Program to bring awareness to informed decision making as it relates to prostate cancer.

The Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program organized over 850 black-owned barbershops across the country over 5,000 volunteers and collaborated with dozens of institutions and service organizations.
