The Hue-MAN Partnership Project focuses on medical health and community outreach to address the health crisis among young and middle-aged men, especially men of color. A play on words for men of all "hues" and "humans," Hue-MAN reduces health disparities by empowering men to make healthy choices for themselves, their families and communities.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Develop effective strategies to build relationships across silos.
- Describe ways to create a common vision and mission for community health.
- Identify ways to work through difficult conversations among partners.
