(WORT) — African American men face serious health disparities, including much higher risks of death from heart disease, stroke and diabetes. But activists and medical professionals are working to address this issue.
James Edward Mills is a freelance journalist and producer of the Joy Trip Project, where he covers issues related to sustainable active living. He is also a contributor to Madison365, and recently reported on “We’re Off to a Good Start,” a program that seeks to improve exercise, nutrition and healthy lifestyles among black men.
Mills spoke with Kristian Knutsen on the phone about the project and where it fits into work to reduce racial disparities.
