2nd Annual National Conference on Social Work With and For Men

April 30 - May 1, 2009
Tuscaloosa, AL

Men are commonly thought of as providers or supporters of others, and often their own needs are dismissed or devalued. Men share experiences and challenges simply because of their expectations and the expectations of others.

This interdisciplinary meeting focuses on how practitioners can assist men to address the challenges they face in the normal course of living, growing, and interacting with others. Educators, practitioners, and researchers will present and discuss best practice models and research findings having direct clinical implications.

1st African American Men's Health and Empowerment Summit

February 28, 2009
Los Angeles, CA

The 2009 African American Men's Health and Empowerment Summit is the first of its kind in Los Angeles and will explore the barriers to achieving better health outcomes. African America men have the lowest life expectancy of any group in the United States primarily because of untreated or inadequately treated preventable diseases.

African American men are dying earlier, and in greater number than any other ethnic group in America. Economic circumstances, environmental conditions and lifestyle choices have combined to create the perfect storm for a host of health disparities that diminish our prospects and endanger our future. As we celebrate the historic victory of President-elect Barack Obama, we must remind ourselves that if current conditions prevail, we will continue to lose thousands of Baracks to a host of preventable medical maladies.
