Black and Latino men in Central Massachusetts are an underserved population suffering significant health disparities. This presentation was part of training provided by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine/New England Region grant, Accessing Health Information for African American, African, and Latino Men: MedlinePlus training for the Barbershop Health Network and the Hector Reyes House, Worcester, MA. Train-the-trainer sessions were presented June 22, June 25, and July 8, 2015 to the staff from both organizations to learn how and where to access reliable consumer health information and, in turn, share these resources with their clients.
