From January to June 2013, FHI 360 researchers spoke with more than 300 African-American men in Durham to explore their experiences and opinions regarding health and health care in the City of Medicine. Based directly on the data generated from those discussions, this performance presents an entertaining, informative, and thought-provoking look at common beliefs about health and barriers to seeking care expressed by one of Durham’s underserved communities: Black men.
Bucking the Medical and Mental Bull explores health-related intersections of:
-Cultural and gender norms
-Historical and social influences
-Medical mistrust and discomfort
-Structural issues, from finances and insurance to access to care
