					PROGRESS REPORT

Program Activities: All activities this quarter were embarked upon in fulfillment of our
overall project goals. The project staff was pleased with the quality of the program
offerings this quarter and wants to see the quantity grow again in the upcoming year. The
project also received feedback from the various programs offered. The project was able
to complete several activities to respond to each of the goals outlined by the grant.
Additionally, we were able to improve programs previously offered and add new
initiatives on campus and throughout the local community.

The project aimed to meet the 4 established objectives with an emphasis on the four areas
of concentration; Diabetes (Pre-diabetes), Cardiovascular Disease, Substance and Drug
Abuse, Unintentional Injuries which are listed here with a synopsis of the activities under
each:

    1.      Health Screenings – We continued to partner with local agencies and to
            provide Screenings for Hypertension, Cholesterol, Diabetes and HIV/AIDS on
            campus and throughout Greene, Montgomery and Hamilton Counties in Ohio.
    2.      Health Education Services – We continued the prevention program,
            curriculum, activity book and workshop to educate middle and high school
            aged children about healthy lifestyles and healthy choices as they relate to
            prevention from participation in high risk behaviors such as obesity,
            aggressive behavior, unintentional injury or substance abuse. We also worked
            to impact health education of college aged students through campus programs,
            services and providing key information to faculty and staff that work with
            students.
    3.      Campus Male Centered Wellness Centers – Through partnership with the
            Campus Health and Wellness Center and the Counseling Staff, we will
            develop and implement a wellness model to support students holistically as
            they move through college. By working through the existing health and
            wellness center and in conjunction with the health services and counseling
            staff, ultimately this initial effort will lay the foundation for the creation of an
            office supported by the university, dedicated solely to student wellness and
            health issues.
    4.      Health Clinic Partnership – We continue to work in partnership with the
            Greene County Combined Health District/Kettering Health Network and Dr.
            Darnell Ladson, M.D.
All project activities are completed and are listed below:

Monthly                 “My Brothers and I Book Club
                        This group consists of 15 black males from the Greater
                        Dayton/Cincinnati Metropolitan Area. The ages range from 26-
                        42. The group was initiated with the sole intend of promoting
                        positive social/literary interaction among young black professional
                        men. The underlying goal is to work towards empowering our
                        men with the tools and support to take their rightful positions
                    within their respective families and communities. The group has
                    bi-weekly or monthly meetings, depending upon the dialogue.

Monthly             “Miami Valley Violence Prevention Coalition”
                    This is a collaborative initiative among various human service
                    organizations within the metropolitan area of Greater Dayton Ohio.
                    The overall goal of this initiative is to raise the level of awareness
                    of youth violence in the area.

Bi-Monthly          “Drug Free Action Alliance”
                    The Wilberforce University NMMHP participates in the collegiate
                    area of the “Drug Free Action Alliance”. The group consists of
                    several universities in the state of Ohio.


Weekly              “Sister to Sister” Mentorship Program
                    This program is a carbon copy of the “Brother to Bother”
                    mentorship program. The group targets the female population at
                    the Dayton View Academy (Ohio). The group utilizes the
                    “Uniquely Me” curriculum from the “Girls Scouts of America”.


Weekly              “One on One”, Male rap Session
                    Students meet weekly with Dr. Darnell Ladson for “One on One”
                    which either consists of a game of basketball with him or time in
                    the counseling office with him to discuss issues. Either way the
                    student receives his insights and assistance for improving their
                    situations.


June 9-20, 2008            Camp Healthy Wayz,
                           The camp was primarily viewed as an in-depth extension of
                           the “Brother to Brother/The Mirror Project from the
                           previous academic year. The goals were grounded in the
                           area of health awareness

                           the disparities that young black males are experiencing
                           within the city of Dayton, Ohio. “Brother to Brother”
                           collaborates with the Dayton View Academy. The focus
                           group includes male student’s grades 5-8th. We continue to
                           grow with one another through the unity of love and
                           wisdom. This is a weekly activity.

Personnel:

The National Minority Male Health Project (NMMHP) at Wilberforce University is
positioned to continue to provide quality programs and services for Greene, Montgomery
and Hamilton counties in Ohio. The project completed its second year successfully
              overcoming several challenges. The challenges were not insurmountable, because the
              core staff remained in place, but the key positions of secretary and evaluator, went
              unstaffed, due to the resignation of those team members from the university. The
              Principal Investigator had worked closely with the evaluator, having conducted the
              majority of research around the risk behaviors project, so that work was assumed by the
              principal investigator. The part-time secretary position was recently filled and that
              placement is a welcome addition to the team. The current organizational chart is listed on
              the below. Given the shifting in responsibility for the PI, and an overview of the shape of
              the project and the direction it is heading has left the project proposing an adjusted
              administrative structure moving forward. Moving forward the project will assume the
              following structure, PI/Evaluator, Project Director, Program Coordinator, Outreach
              Coordinator, PT Secretary, and Grad Assistant for Programs. Additionally we will
              continue to work to engage the advisory board to ensure community connections and
              collaborations.

                                   Program Coordinator & Outreach
Issues:
Because of the change in staff, we were not able to launch our website, however, we are
most excited about the upcoming launch of our website www.myhealthywayz.com which
will allow the project to provide health information and program updates to a larger
audience.

Wilberforce University had another year of climbing the learning curve this year
in the project. We are now acutely aware of the toll that staffing shortages take
on the project’s ability to meet the established goals. With this said, we were not
able to do as many screening events as we have in the past, because we were
missing the project secretary who was a critically important link. She had
established all of the relationships so we had to spend a considerable amount of
time researching and reconnecting with our community partners and vendors.

We are continuing our focus on the impact that Risk Behaviors have on students
of all grade levels ability to persist and we will utilize the pre-test and post test
data to measure how NMMHP grant sponsored programs impact their attitudes
and participation.

We met greater success with participation in the intramural programs and weekly
Zuumba classes, and given this increased participation we will be adding an
additional component/requirement for teams to participate next year. In addition
to participating, they must complete a risk-behaviors pre-test and attend
programming sponsored by the grant and complete a post-test at the completion of
the season.

We continue to find challenges with pulling together the advisory board, but are
hopeful with the addition of the secretary, that some of the logistical and
scheduling pieces will not fall through the cracks. The inconsistency in support
staff also added to our inability to actualize the website and host a successful
launch. We are looking forward to having a successful launch in the near future,
now that everyone is in place.

Finally, we continue to grow more aware of the needs of our constituency on and
off campus and are continuing to work to coordinate with existing entities with
similar missions to collaborate on the provision of programs and services for this
population. The collaboration with outside entities with similar missions allows
us to cover more territory, to “stretch” the program funding to meet a larger
audience and to begin to plant seeds for sustaining and institutionalizing these
programs and services at the close of the funding cycle.
Evaluation:
As stated earlier the project aims to meet the 4 established objectives with an emphasis
on the four areas of concentration; Diabetes (Pre-diabetes), Cardiovascular Disease,
Substance and Drug Abuse, Unintentional Injuries. Given this framework our project
utilized the CDC’s Risk behaviors surveillance as the basis for our evaluation plan in an
effort to collect data that spoke to the needs of the overall project. The CDC risk
behaviors surveillance enables us to ask specific questions and evaluate participant’s
knowledge of or participation in high risk behaviors including but not limited to,
substance abuse, unintentional injury, and nutrition/obesity issues. The latter two are
important because participation could lead to cardiovascular disease or diabetes, two of
the other targeted areas of concentration for the project.

Our project looks to specifically evaluate the relationship between participation in high
risk behaviors and the impact on school performance or retention. The desired outcome
of this approach is to lessen the incidents of students doing poorly or leaving school as a
result of participation in these behaviors. Our research design consisted of a pretest –
interventions – posttest model. We administered the pretest at the beginning of the Fall
semester to a cohort of new students. The students where then invited to participate in a
comprehensive set of programs and services regarding healthy lifestyles and making
healthy choices. We will administer the post test to the students in August. The results
of the pretest survey are in the attachment.

The findings over the past few years have given us a better look at the impact that
participation in high risk behavior has on student persistence. The results of the project
have been used to redesign programs for students most notably new student orientation.
The results of the evaluation were also presented at the College Educators International
Conference in National Harbor Maryland in March 2009.

We hosted 14 young men for Camp Health Wayz in June. The objective of the camp was
to expose middle school boys to healthy lifestyles and the dangers of participating in high
risk behaviors. The anticipated outcome was to impact their knowledge about high risk
behaviors to serve as early intervention in hopes of them not participating in high risk
behaviors. We provided their parents with an orientation and had them submit a
permission slip in order to have the participants complete the risk behavior surveillance.
The participants took the Risk Behaviors pre-test and also had an initial physical to check
weight at the beginning of the camp. As part of the camp, they spent each day
researching, presenting and discussing issues concerning participation in high risk
behavior in order to increase their knowledge about the behaviors.

The results found that the majority of the participants reported that they were not sexually
active and very few had experimented with alcohol and none had used drugs. Several of
the young men complained about not having active fathers in their lives and one
participant reported that he had thought about suicide but not attempted it. Some
respondents said that they wanted their families to have closer ties and more quality time
with their parents. The post test results did not change for them in these areas.
Participants did indicate that they learned more about nutrition and health as a result of
the camp, specifically in the areas of Cholesterol and Hypertension.


Additionally we continue to evaluate our project on the impact that it makes in the
communities we serve. We gather impact on community data by noting how many
persons we serve at individual events. We also participate in administering the access to
health questionnaire and we submit those surveys to the overall project to be added to
that data collection.

                      partnership and goal 2 health education and all four of the targeted
                      areas are covered with specific emphasis on High risk behaviors,
                      specifically substance and drug abuse and unintentional injuries.
                      The PI/evaluator is the lead on this initiative.


Evaluation: For 2009-2010 the project aims to meet the 4 established objectives with an
emphasis on the four areas of concentration; Diabetes (Pre-diabetes), Cardiovascular
Disease, Substance and Drug Abuse, Unintentional Injuries. We will once again use the
CDC’s Risk behaviors surveillance as the basis for our evaluation plan in an effort to
collect data that speaks to the needs of the overall project.
Our project looks to continue to specifically evaluate the relationship between
participation in high risk behaviors and the impact on school performance or retention.
The desired outcome of this approach is to lessen the incidents of students doing poorly
or leaving school as a result of participation in these behaviors. Our research design
consisted of a pretest – interventions – posttest model.

The project will also continue to measure impact by collecting data about program
participation in events and screenings offered through the project.

The evaluation of the project will be lead by Dr. Kenya LeNoir Messer, project evaluator.
The research agenda has been set for 2009-2010 and the project evaluator has developed
the pre-test-intervention-post test model to be re-implemented. The tool that will be used
will be the CDC Risk Behaviors Surveillance. A follow up access survey to capture the
number of participants and their feedback on screening events and subsequent follow up
has been developed and will be used to measure impact.

The project team meets weekly to assess the progress of the project and to discuss
scheduled programs and events. Site visits to new project partners will be established for
2009-2010. At the close of the 2008-2009 year the project team set the preliminary
schedule of programs and events to meet the stated objectives. The project will begin
2009-2010 program year with the first team meeting scheduled for this period.
The weekly meetings will begin Friday June 25, 2009 at 2pm.
