Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Health

The 2nd Annual Man Up – Chicago’s Men’s Lifestyle Expo is back, and it’s more than just an event; it’s a movement towards transforming the narrative around men’s health. Scheduled for June 8, 2024, at the Instituto del Progresso Latino Career Academy, located at 2520 S. Western Avenue, Chicago, this dynamic one-day expo is dedicated to celebrating Men’s Health Month while addressing the unique health disparities faced by Black and Brown communities. Over 15 speakers are confirmed to speak on panels ranging from Mental Health, Nutrition, Prostate and Colon Cancer. Manhood, Grooming and much more. Brown and Black men often encounter disproportionate rates of hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease, compounded by barriers to accessing healthcare. Men from these communities are also experiencing prostate cancer at a much earlier age here in Chicago. The Man Up expo aims to bridge these gaps by providing accessible health screenings, wellness checkups, and educational workshops tailored to their specific needs. The event is free.
