#Brotherswhotweet – Twitter Chat 6/24

By on June 27, 2014

Innovative and influential not-for-profit and community service organizations will celebrate Men’s Health Month with three twitter chat events, using the hashtag #brotherswhotweet to talk to Black men and their allies about sex, sexual health, mental stress, exercise, and much, more.

African American men are disproportionately affected by health disparities, a fact that has remained since disparities have been recorded. From heart health, sexual health to mental health, Black males across the lifespan experience higher morbidity and mortality. Specifically, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says HIV/AIDS, prostate cancer, heart disease, obesity and homicide claim more lives of Black men than their white counterparts (CDC, 2010).

African-American men incurred $341.8 billion in excess medical costs due to health inequalities between 2006 and 2009, according to the study published this year in the International Journal of Men’s Health.

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. Twitter is especially popular among younger African Americans.

Event Information:

Community health leaders and subject-matter experts representing the Midwest, south, and the east coast are partnering to facilitate a social media event on twitter. Subject-matter experts will talk about and answer inquiries to promote sexual health, mental health, and fitness, potentially reaching more than 10,000 Black males.
