December 12, 2018

Through the Black Men’s Wellness Sustainable Initiative, Aaron Perry is using a grant from the Wisconsin Partnership Program in the UW School of Medicine and Public Health to change how his community perceives and experiences health. His innovative approach includes Black Men Run, Brown Boys Read and expanding a health center — which resides inside a barbershop — to other barbershops in Dane County. His ultimate goal is to build a culture of wellness and support so Dane County becomes a place where African-American males thrive.
