For the past year, Paoli Hospital has provided health screenings, literature racks, educational 1-on-1 interaction with patrons and educators at a local coed African-American barber shop. Monthly themes have included BP screening, cardiac health, stroke screening, physical fitness assessment, nutrition, colorectal health, and smoking. A prostate screening was held adjacent to the shop last fall with several clients needing physician followup. This relationship has heightened awareness among this population to the need for preventive health and personal responsibility. This year we are expanding to include other local barber shops in health awareness issues.
