Abstract

The Maryland Health Quality and Cost Council is launching a workgroup to address health disparities among racial minorities, using tactics such as performing health screenings in barber shops. University of Maryland School of Medicine Dean Dr. E. Albert Reece will lead the group in designing strategies and initiatives to reach minority groups. One could be the “barbershop engagement” approach, something Baltimore’s men’s health outreach program already uses.
