The Minority Men’s Health Center of Cleveland Clinic’s Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute, one of the first in the country, addresses the challenges of healthcare disparities among minorities.

Through a multidisciplinary approach of culturally sensitive clinical care, community outreach, community health literacy education, health provider health disparity education, mentorship for future health care providers and health disparities research, the Minority Men’s Health Center takes on some of the nation’s current greatest challenges. In cooperation with the Cleveland Clinic Medicine Institute and other Cleveland Clinic clinicians and researchers at Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute, the Center pursues a wide variety of studies such as immunology, molecular genetics, behavioral research and clinical trials of new therapies and diagnostics all designed to address the elimination of health disparities.

The Minority Men’s Health Center, established in 2003, provides an opportunity for minority males to undergo complete comprehensive medical evaluations to promote health & wellness and undergo health screenings for the early detection, prevention and/or treatment of a vast number of medical conditions which disproportionately afflict minority male populations, including urologic and male health concerns such as prostate cancer, benign prostatic disease, erectile dysfunction and kidney disease. The Minority Men’s Health Center also serves as a primary medical center home for men through collaboration with the Medicine Institute and Kidney Transplant Center for the early diagnosis, prevention and treatment of primary medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, kidney disease and access to kidney transplantation.
