Rationale: The 100 Black Men of America Health and Wellness COVID Committee has several partnerships with organizations such as Pfizer, Apple, etc to educate the community about COVID as well as encourage vaccinations while decreasing hesitancy.  As the fall approaches there is a national initiative to get all youth > 12 vaccinated prior to returning to schools.  

US COVID-19 VACCINATIONS IN YOUNG ADULTS WHO RECEIVED AT LEAST 1 DOSE

AGE RANGE    % of Youth w/ 1 dose (Pfizer)    2nd Dose
Ages 18-24                      50%                         41%
Ages 16-17                      45%                         37%
Ages 12-15                      33%                         25%
Currently according to the CDC

In addition, the 100 BMOA Violence Prevention Action Committee (VPAC) has officially partnered with the National American Red Cross to educate middle school and high students about the importance of donating blood once they turn 16 years of age while reducing violence in their communities.

The Red Cross is at a critical shortage of “Type O” which is universal blood used in emergencies (OB, Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleeds, Trauma, Sickle Cell, etc).  This decreases the chances of a person who is in shock (low Blood Pressure) from loss of blood surviving once they arrive in an Emergence Department, particularly in Hospitals located in Black and Brown Neighborhoods).  

The Violence Prevention Action Committee has created an initiative called “Sleeves Up, Violence Out” to encourage youth all across the country to roll their sleeves up to obtain their vaccinations and donate blood while simultaneously doing their part to decrease violence.  Violence is increased all across the country and the 100 BMOA VPAC is bringing awarness to important stats:

#1 Killer of Young Black Men 10-24 years of age is Homicide

#2 Killer of Young Hispanic Men 10-24 years of age is Homicide

HEALTH CARE 2.0 SAVED MY LIFE

The 100 Black Men Health Care 2.0 initiative this summer saved my life by making me aware to know my "numbers and get that physical I was putting off.  No real symptoms were present.  At least none for the average Black Man to be concerned about.  I had no idea that I had lost half the blood in my body and was a few days from transitioning quietly.  I challenge you all to get a physical and know your numbers.  There are a lot of silent killers out there.

Improving The Quality of Black Lives Through Prevention

 

The shameful excess mortality experienced by Black Americans, due to common but preventable chronic diseases is inexcusable.  We can't wait for things to change for our people.  To do so would constitute neglect and history will record a lack of leadership by our organization.  We must immediately embrace the innovative strategies available to help reduce high morbidity and mortality rates, which disproportionately burden Black people.  Our goal is to improve the quality of Black lives through prevention rather than relying solely on medical treatment options.

 

We invite everyone to join the 100 Black Men of America in the fight against health inequities among our people, especially those exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, by first downloading the MIMI Rx™ app on your smart device and then beginning your own persistent biometric self-monitoring program.

The 100's Health & Wellness Committee has discovered a promising technology for monitoring these critical vital signs

  • Blood Pressure

  • Glucose Levels

  • Temperature

  • Body Mass Index

  • Oxygen Saturation

  • Heart Rate

These and other risk factors can identify the presence and progression of dangerous chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.

Introducing Health Care 2.0 powered by MIMI-RX™
The basis of this innovative technological approach to health care is an integrated telemedicine and persistent monitoring application called MIMI-RX™ which will improve access to health care for many Black people.  MIMI-RX™ was developed by Eagle Force Associates, Inc., a Black-Owned Business based in Virginia.  The recent introduction of this strategy to the 100's Health & Wellness Committee has been transformative.  MIMI-RX™ has received resounding approval from the 100 Board of Directors and the Health & Wellness Committee.  We are calling our approach to health and wellness and all associate initiative Health Care 2.0.

COVID-19

The COVID-19 Pandemic has compounded the dangers associated with the risk factors that persists for Black people and has exposed our vulnerabilities to a wide range of poor health outcmes.  As we are embracing a new paradigm for health and health care which is better suited for the majority of Black people than the current model, an equally promising use of this emerging technology has been realized.  The 100s Health Care 2.0 contains the potential to serve as a pre-hospital, field triage strategy for the detection and characterization of acute upper respiratory illnesses, including coronavirus disease 2019 (SARS-CoV-2), particularly in Black communities.
