A panel of experts will headline the “Brothers Talk Too Virtual Men’s Conference,” which takes place on Saturday, June 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Zoom and Facebook Live.

The event, hosted by the Cynthia Perry Ray Foundation, is a component of the organization’s Witness2Fitness Health and Awareness Initiative. The main goal of the effort is to promote good health among men pants in the Black community through education and reduction interventions and programs.

“To reduce gender inequalities in minority males, CPRF is bringing together men from various locations, occupations and denominations with noted healthcare professionals. This event is just for men and we hope will lead to a sustainable agenda to improve the health and well-being of minority males as well as build collaborations to fight the injustice in health disparities,” explained Dr. Kathye Jenkins, CPRF founder and president.

Participants include Dr. Phillip Gardiner, co-chair of the African American Tobacco Control Leadership Council; Dr. Frank Harris III, Center for Organizational Responsibility and Advancement (CORA); Dr. James A. Jenkins, CEO of Pacific Arthritis Care; Dr. William King, Internal Medicine/HIV Specialist; Dr. Tony Kuo, deputy director of the L.A. County Department of Public Health’s Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention; Courtney Pierce, community health advocate for The G.R.E.E.N Foundation; Dr. Richard Allen Williams, founder and president of the Minority Health Institute; and Dr. Darnell Jones, Sr., program moderator.


According to Ronnell Nichols, event chair, the conference will also address low health literacy, prevention strategies and treatment of sickness and disease.

“As the current pandemic looms, health disparities such as heart disease, cancer and kidney failure have gone unnoticed for the moment. But, in most parts of the United States, health outcomes among males continue to be substantially worse than among females,” she noted.

“Through this free conference, we hope to aid men in making positive and healthy changes to their lifestyles.”

Registration is open on Eventbrite, via email at [email protected] or by texting your name and email address to (562) 374-3296.
