Objectives In September 2002, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services launched “Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day”, a national effort to promote health and wellness in the African American community. The Center for Minority Health (CMH) at the Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh adopted this model and tailored it to meet local needs by partnering with seven barbershops, two beauty salons, and over one hundred health professionals (HPs) to create what is now known as “Take a Health Professional to the People Day”. The focus of this partnership was to provide screenings and health information to patrons and transform these shops and salons into health promotion sites.
