A Guide To Health Screenings For Black Men

New research has suggested that many black men may not visit their doctor because they find the interaction stressful and don’t feel physicians give them enough useful information on how to make recommended lifestyle changes.

The findings from a recent study stem from a series of focus groups with black men regarding their physicians. The results show doctors are coming up short when it comes to advising patients on how to make healthy changes in behavior — such as eating better, exercising more or weight loss — without sacrificing time with family.
