The event is open to men of all ages and the women who love them.

"The statistics around men's health are daunting, particularly for men of color,” says Eric Von, founder of Brain, Brawn & Body. “Many of the illnesses and diseases men suffer from are preventable and most are treatable if detected early. Knowledge is the key and raising awareness is one of our primary objectives. Through our website and now, this summit, men can get the knowledge they need so that they and their families can live healthier lives."

The Health & Wellness Summit is free and begins at 7:00 am and runs until 3:00 pm. The day will kick off with a wake up/warm up exercise session led by professional trainers. There will be a variety of wellness workshops including:

  • Physician led workshops and free wellness checks by Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare
  • HIV/AIDS and sexual health by Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin
  • Mental health awareness by the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill
  • Healthcare career options presented by MATC
  • Responsible Living presented by the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative
  • Healthy cooking demonstrations
  • Plenary session featuring an "Athletes in Action" panel presentation by former Green Bay Packers Leroy Butler, George Koonce and Harry Sydney.
  • Former Packer Gilbert Brown will conduct a football clinic for youth 13-18 years of age on the Journey House football field just two blocks from the main campus. Register for the football clinic here. The clinic is open to the first 100 children who register.

We hope to see you there!
