There is a silent health crisis in America.  It’s a fact that on average, American men live sicker and die much younger than American women. The statistics for African-American and Latino males are much worse.  They die younger and in great numbers of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and other preventable diseases.  They experience symptoms of an enlarged prostate, impotence or erectile dysfunction, headaches, fatigue, addictions, and depression – all of which can be symptoms of a serious health problem  Research shows men are more likely to engage in unhealthy behavior; don’t seek medical attention; are less likely to have health insurance; and more likely to work in dangerous occupations.

The MWUL held workshops on such topics as the male prostate, heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, the male nervous system, mental illness, healthy teeth and gums, and a host of others. With the gracious help from celebrities  Grammy Award singer songwriter Eddie LeVert and activist and educator Kevin Powell, along with dignitaries ted Blunt, John Carney, and Sen. Tom Carper, men were educated, enlightened and empowered that day.
