On November 7th, 2011 the 100 Black Men of Long Island, Inc. appointed me to serve as Health & Wellness Chairman to raise awareness of activities that citizens can pursue which lead to healthier lives and combat health disparities. “Health awareness poses a significant challenge for African Americans and all other ethnic cultures of Long Island. This appointment as Health & Wellness Chairman for the 100 is a significant step which is timely and needed to reverse trends of the lack of adequate information which leads to health disparities. The 100 Black Men of Long Island is the 2nd oldest chapter of 100 Black Men of America, Inc., and was established in 1974. My advocacy will cover both Nassau & Suffolk Counties. The purpose of the 100 Black Men of Long Island is to improve the quality of life for all people on Long Island, particularly those of African-American heritage; achieve 100 percent equality in all aspects of community life, including the elimination of bigotry and discrimination; defend human and civil rights; and give assistance to members in honorable endeavors". I would like to give special thanks to Phil Andrews the President of the 100 Black Men of Long Island, Award Winning Actor Kevin Byrd” Kevin Byrd 100 Black Men of Long Island, Inc.
