LifeBridge Health Partners with Live Chair Health to Offer Coronavirus Support And Expansion of Barbershop Health Screening Program
A haircut, a shave and a screening for COVID-19. A new partnership between LifeBridge Health and Live Chair Health will expand the program’s innovative health screening initiative to more Baltimore-area barbers, while also providing COVID-19 support in the form of PPE (personal protective equipment), screening tools, education and resources for barbershop clients who think they may have had been exposed to the Coronavirus.
The partnership builds on Live Chair Health’s successful program working with local barbers to screen patrons for high blood pressure, BMI (body mass index) and other risk factors for heart disease and stroke. Program founders recognized that the trust, friendship and camaraderie of the barbershop could be a vehicle for conversations around health concerns, which many men are reluctant to discuss.
