(Niagara Falls, NY)  - The African American Male Wellness Walk Initiative is proud to announce Roswell Park Cancer Institute’s Dr. Willie Underwood, MD, MS, MHS as the Honorary Chairman for the First Annual African American Male Wellness Walk/Run in Niagara Falls, NY.

The African American Wellness Walk is the largest health initiative for African Americans in the state of Ohio.

Moving across the nation, the walk initiative will be held in seven cities; Columbus, OH; Toledo, OH; Youngstown OH; Niagara Falls, NY; Detroit, Michigan; Washington D.C. and Silver Springs, MD.

Men will be encouraged to take charge of their health by bringing their family together in unity for the cause of good health, well being, awareness and prevention. The Kid’s Area is also a highlight of the Walk activities along with over 25 vendors on the Pavilion to distribute information to the community.
