Meeting tomorrow to focus on study of health homes for men who have sex with men

In 2012, the Meharry Youth Health and Wellness Center received a grant from the Baptist Healing Trust to provide health services for young men who have sex with men, with a special focus on young African-American men.

In order to fulfill this mission, a partnership was formed with Nashville CARES and StreetWorks, Project ONO and a team of researchers to learn from young men what they would like to have in a health home. Findings from a series of focus groups will be presented at a meeting from 8:30 to 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 2, in the Nashville CARES multi-purpose room, 633 Thompson Lane.

Presenters will be  Freida Outlaw, adjunct professor, Vanderbilt University Peabody College Department of Human and Organizational Development, and Ranae Evenson Newhouse, assistant professor, Tennessee State University, Department of Sociology.
