Premier Health Barbershop Health Initiative Partnership


Premier Health has partnered with five barbershops in Montgomery County, and one barbershop and one barbering school in Butler County, to increase awareness of chronic health conditions and promote healthy lifestyle choices within the African-American community.

The Barbershop Health Initiative (BHI), which launched in 2019, offers free health screenings and health education at Serenity Salon, Deeez Cuttz Barbershop, Man Up Barbershop, City Stars Unlimited Barber and Salon, Headliner Barbershop, and Stylzes Barber and Nail Care.  The events are scheduled on select days, Thursday through Sunday, from April 21 to December 17, 2022.  

Voluntary health care services and screenings are offered and features blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) calculation and a non-fasting fingerstick that measures total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C. The opportunity to meet with a lifestyle coach and have a tailored conversation regarding screening values and discuss strategies on how to improve health, is also available. The BHI features a special event series, called Highlight Days, which offers additional education and resources. Additionally, events scheduled from September through December have a limited supply of flu shots available. All services are free to the community.

CPR/AED/First Aid Training – twelve of the barbers and hair stylists involved in the BHI have received CPR, automated external defibrillator (AED) and First Aid training. Each barber has been certified by the American Heart Association. Five AED devices have been installed in the five partnered barbershops.
