Film Premiere: No Longer An Island
Thursday, February 28th
Inn at the Commons (formerly Park’s Place)
hosted by the Men's Wellness Council & Walnut Way
The Men’s Wellness Council was developed as a space for African American men to explore the meaning of health and wellness and identify areas of action in their community. The Council proved to be a model for fostering transformative social connections and mentorship across generations and resulted in a documentary film to promote community dialogue. Funded by the Wisconsin Partnership Program, the initiative is a partnership between Walnut Way, the YMCA Northside, UWM Zilber School of Public Health, the Center for Urban Population Health, and UW Collaborative Center for Health Equity.
