June 12 — Alumni organize coast-to-coast men’s health event
Carter Todd and Aron King, both alumni of the master’s-degree leadership program at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, led the development of a Black men’s health event, the “Barbershop Health Talks,” that streamed live June 12. The event was a coast-to-coast platform bringing important topics in Black men’s health to the barbershop. Mental health, COVID-19, preventive health, fatherhood and pathways to careers in health care were some of the many topics discussed. Hosted by comedian Lance Wood and featuring live sets from DJ Supe, the West Coast coverage streamed live from the historic Guild Theater in Sacramento, California, and was hosted by the Capitol City Black Nurses Association, a group both Carter and Aron helped launch. The East Coast coverage was led by the Greater New York Black Nurses Association. A recording of the three-and-a-half-hour event is available on YouTube.
