Speaker:Kenneth BraswellDirector Fatherhood Initiative New York State Office for Temporary and Disability Assistance The health of men is an important factor in determining the well being and stability of a community. From a social determinant point of view, fathers/men with unhealthy lifestyles have an adverse impact on families and do little to promote positive youth development. Additionally, men of all races and socio-economic status are less likely to practice good health, visit health care providers, and take care of themselves. If we are to attempt to improve community health, we must direct more focus on men’s health and responsible/positive fathering. Program Objectives After watching this broadcast participants will be able to: Explain the impact of positive male parenting to build strong communitiesIdentify challenges and opportunities for men/fathers to contribute to the well-being of communities Describe the model and best practices in the responsible fathering communityExplain the links between responsible fatherhood, and the health of men, children, families and the community at large Originally webcast on June 18, 2009
