When & Where
Healthy Jacksonville Men's Health Coalition, Inc.
The Healthy Jacksonville Men’s Health Coalition, Inc. (HJMHC) is a 501c3 non-profit coalition of individuals representing various civic organizations, hospitals, faith & educational institutions working to improve the status of men’s health in Duval County.
Our goal is to decrease the incidence & prevalence of chronic health conditions in males and increase the awareness of unhealthy lifestyle choices resulting in poor health outcomes.
Since education is a strong predictor of health, the Man Up Summit is a great venue for bringing males together to learn about issues specifically affecting their health.
Unhealthy behaviors sustained over a long period of time increases the likelihood of developing many diseases.
