Governor John Kasich has recognized August as African American Male Wellness Month throughout the state of Ohio.
The proclamation reads in part, "Whereas, Mr. (John) Gregory has led the charge to respond to the health crisis of African American men in our urban communities, who experience higher rates of health disparities than any other ethnic group... Whereas, I commend John Gregory and the growing network of African American Male Wellness Walk events across our great state. From Columbus to Toledo to Warren to Youngstown and Dayton, thank you and the event sponsors for serving the specific and unique health needs facing African American men in Ohio."
