Guy Talk: A Virtual Conversation on Black Men’s Well Being with Dr. Thomas Fisher Jr. MD, MPH, UChicago Medicine & Dr. Edwin McDonald IV MD. UChicago Medicine
As many of you already know, Don and I started The Cleveland Avenue Foundation for Education (The CAFE) several years ago to help students and professionals on their paths to leadership. One of the most important aspects of The CAFE is our desire to convene people around relevant topics across the broad education landscape. In recognition of Men’s Health Month (June), our initial intent was to convene a group of Black men to discuss important topics related to COVID-19 and other pressing health issues. However, in light of recent events, we updated the topic to cover Men’s overall Well-Being. Women frequently get together to discuss topics like this, but men tend to gather with much less frequency for these types of discussions. Our hope was to change that.
