The CARS project consists of four critical pillars:
St. Louis CARS aims to recommend and implement new changes at a regional level to create positive sexual health outcomes for Black men aged 18 to 29
Healing Centered Engagement
St. Louis CARS is grounded in focusing on the unique needs of the focus population to ensure optimum lasting community change
St. Louis CARS develops partnerships with regional constituents and organizations that focus on improving the lived experiences of Black men
Community Advisory Board
St. Louis CARS is driven by a dynamic community advisory board that leads through intellect, resilience, and personal narratives
Community Advisory Board Priorities
Education - Black Men Must be Educated around their Sexual Health. Consistently, as a community, there seems to be miseducation and a lack of education around healthcare for Black men.
Mental health - Black Men Must be Healed and Whole. In order to have strong and positive sexual encounters, we want to be sure that we are fully understanding of our Whole selves. We believe in healing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Holistic Health - Black Men Must be Healthy. Traditionally, men struggle to adhere to healthcare practices. We want to invest Black men in their sexual health as well as their overall well being. We want to ensure that we are living well throughout our lifetime.
