The Office of Minority Health (OMH) at the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has launched Men's Health Listening Sessions across the country. The purpose of these discussions was to learn thoughts and perceptions around factors that impact overall health. These events allow men an opportunity to provide feedback on key areas including: Health & Prevention, Substance Abuse/Mental Health, and Fitness & Nutrition.

The Man Up Man Down team attended the Sparkling Smiles Soiree hosted by the Michigan Dental Association Foundation. The foundation has donated $10,000 to our Dental Health Fair in 2017. Thanks to the support of the Michigan Dental Association to our 2017 fair, we were able to more than double our attendance from the 2016 fair and extend our fair to include much more fun and food for all the attendees. Lastly, we were able to attract more youth and young adults who are more susceptible to dental carries. During the soiree the Man Up Man Down displayed the success of our event from the foundation's contribution.
