Mission

The Black Men's Health Clinic addresses disparities through effective strategies focused on decreasing mortality and morbidity rates among men of color via improved quality of life, self-health maintenance, and family lifestyle. Although the BMHC focuses on black men, it is open to all men of color, ages 18 and over, residing in East Travis County by making physical, behavioral, and social care more accessible in underserved and underrepresented communities with a focus on transforming and removing stigmas regarding typical healthcare systems into positive life-changing experiences by reaching men where they live, work, play and pray with culturally appropriate disease prevention awareness messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy, and patient navigation.

BMHC - Care You Can Trust

The BMHC provides services via partnerships and collaborations (MOUs). The referral process for holistic and comprehensive services is two-way, with the clinic identifying patient needs and coordinating appointments with warm-handoffs (or education classes) and partners referring their patients to the BMHC for appointment coordination (or education classes) outside their cultural competency, bandwidth, or area of functionality. Care coordinators directly engage with partners to identify subsequent available appointments or education classes and render warm handoffs with timely follow-ups to ensure continuity of care and trust in the healthcare system. At the conclusion of services and throughout the patient journey, care coordinators will seek real-time input from patients for near-term constructive feedback to providers and long-term analysis on system improvement to enhance patient experiences and outcomes
