SU Ag Center set to hold Women’s and Men’s Health Luncheons
Baton Rouge, La. – The Southern University Ag Center, in partnership with All of Us Research Program, will host free Health Luncheons for Women and Men in the Baton Rouge area.
The Women’s Health Luncheon themed, “Celebrating Strength, Resilience, and Empowerment,” will be held on May 31, 2023 in honor of Women’s Health Month. The event will consist of a panelist discussion covering issues such as cervical health, mental health, stress, nutrition, and gastroenterology.
A Men’s Health Luncheon themed, “Navigating the Journey to Wellness,” will be on June 8, 2023 in observance of Men’s Health Month. Topics covered during the event will include mental health, cardiology, gastro, and general health.
Both luncheons will be held in the Ballroom of the Smith-Brown Memorial Student Union on the campus of Southern University from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.
“These luncheons aim to educate our audience on the importance of those health areas that impact them most,” Jasmin Mathews, SU Ag Center Communities of Color Network Director and Public Health Assistant Specialist. “Participants will hear from experts in these specialties to promote healthy living and to encourage productive dialogue between provider and patient. When participants leave, they will have an understanding of a collective whole-body approach to health,” added Mathews.
The All of Us Research Program is a historic, longitudinal effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By considering individual differences in lifestyle, socioeconomics, environment, and biology, it is the hope that researchers will one day uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine – or individualized prevention, treatment, and care – for all of us.
The SU Ag Center serves as an engagement partner for the All of Us Research Program by bringing program awareness and education to historically underrepresented communities in our state.
