Description

On Saturday August 24, 2024, DMTL Nonprofit Organization will host A Healthy KSU 3K. Our vision is to decrease the health disparities within and among African American communities, bridging gaps to help achieve Health Equity!

 

Kentucky State University alumnus and A Healthy KSU and DMTL founder Tyrie Nason Buchanan noticed a large number of his classmates and younger KSU alumni were losing their lives to health-related issues far too soon. DMTL is a 501c3 nonprofit organization focusing on health equity and mentorship and bears the initials of Buchanan’s mother and brothers whom he lost to gun violence. He made a pledge to do something to highlight healthy lifestyles while also promoting inclusivity for the entire African American community.

 

A collaboration and partnership with the city of Frankfort, Frankfort Regional Medical Center, other local hospitals, Kentucky State University, KSU Alumni Association, community based organizations, and DMTL was born and evolved into an official 3K and Health Fair event with other community programming throughout the year.

 

Four successful events have been held raising funds to support cancer care and research at the U of L Brown Cancer Center, awarding KSU students with scholarships, providing various health screenings and health education campaigns to the African American community.

 

Compared to their white counterparts, African Americans are at higher risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, prostate cancer, triple negative breast cancer, poor maternal and infant health, asthma, stroke, obesity, and lack of access to medical doctors. Alumni, family, and guests are encouraged to come together with purpose to bring awareness of the health disparities in the African American community so that we can build sustainable outcomes for generations to come.

 

Together through sponsorship and partnership we can connect and grow our community while providing education, resources, and support to continue closing the health gaps to help our friends, family, and communities thrive.
