The purpose of the African American Male Wellness Walk Initiative is to raise awareness for preventable health diseases.
A Message from our National Chairman
WELCOME and THANK YOU for your interest, participation and support of the African American Male Wellness Walk Initiative (AAMWW)!!!!
This year, 2016, marks the 12th year for the AAMWW. Founded by Mr. John Gregory of the National Center for Urban Solutions, this effort to bring awareness to health disparities affecting African American men in Ohio has now become a NATIONAL INITIATIVE.
The AAMWW has provided thousands of free health screenings across the state of Ohio, resulting in recognition from President Barack Obama…
Letter from President Barack Obama
