New York, NY (June 2, 2015) – Filmmakers Squeaky Moore and Kenneth Todd Nelson have joined forces with Harlem Hospital and Columbia University Institute for Research in African American Studies to host a men’s health event. The Mind, Body and Spirit: Men’s Health and Wellness Conference and Fair, co-chaired by acclaimed author and mental health advocate, Terrie M. Williams, and world-renowned psychologist, Dr. Jeffrey Gardere, will be held at the Harlem Hospital Center Mural Pavilion, Saturday, June 13, 2015 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The fair, a gathering of thought leaders, community and mental health advocates, healthcare professionals and vendors, focuses on generating conversation and solutions to men’s health issues, especially those related to primary care, mental and spiritual health. The conference was initiated by Moore and Nelson, who continue sounding the alarm on mental health issues among African Americans. This event provides a platform to bring awareness to all issues related to the mind, body and spirit of health among minority men.

“The Mind, Body and Spirit conference and fair was birthed from our passion to help people live their best lives,” said Moore. “We cannot ignore the health issues facing minorities, but we understand the obstacles that impede people from getting the help they need.”

“We encourage all men to join us on June 13,” adds Nelson. “We believe lives will be changed by the engaging, informative sessions. It is a great opportunity for males of all ages to connect with one another and gain greater insight on matters that affect men and boys across the board.”

This fair will present innovative approaches to resolving health issues by incorporating Journey to Healing’s “Art Healing,” a form of therapy that initiates the healing process through various artistic mediums, including mime, video presentations, dance, and music. The fair will also host interactive art workshops. Joining the event and performing are Jazz at Lincoln Center, Urban Word Poets, Rapper, Donny Goines, Jazz Violinist Charisa, Visual Artist Stephanie Whitaker and others.

Four visionaries will be honored at the conference for their work and accomplishments in the community: Governor David Paterson, Jason Davis (Poet and Parent Consultant for Youth Self-Inflicted Injuries), Shawn Dove (Campaign for Black Male Achievement) and Pastor Alfonso Wyatt (Jericho Faith-Based Technical Assistance Project).

Ilen & Lauren Bell are the husband and wife team behind Black Fitness Today, born, in 2011, out of their motivation to change culture, build a platform and lead the charge. Their purpose is to help change the culture towards health and fitness in the African-American community, showcase those who are making an impact, and promote healthier living. They also aim to serve as a platform for African-American fitness and health professionals and enthusiasts who are otherwise overlooked in traditional fitness media.

The mom of two said she gained 60 lbs during both of her pregnancies and had to work very hard to get back in shape. “I said I wasn’t going to gain 60lbs carrying Sienna…and I did exactly that!” she stated in an Instagram post.

Every postpartum journey is different, but you can’t help but be motivated by Cici! “After delivering my son, a 9-lb. 10-oz. baby, and gaining 60 lbs., I was committed to [returning] to how I felt before I had him. Four months after having him, I was back to my original shape,” she said. “There’s something very empowering about that. Something about that gave me an extra pep in my step, and motivated me even more to go harder.”

Tracee on her body confidence with the Tracy Anderson Method workouts:
“…I have to say that Tracy Anderson’s workout the last five years has been really good for me. I love the studio atmosphere, I love how beautiful and sexy and long and strong I look when I work out, and I love the loud music.

I find that, as adults, we stay so regimented in our movement, even if we get on a treadmill. The music changes all the patterns, and my body gets to move freely, so you feel amazing—which is ultimately the point of the workouts, too. One of the things that’s most encouraging is you see a roomful of women working their asses off and looking beautiful. You see women in their 40s wearing jog bras and their stomachs out proudly, walking in a stance that says, “I love my body,” and that’s exciting to me.”

Kelly on her morning routine: “The first thing I do is at least two or three minutes of meditation. I started doing that after I had my son. It has helped me tremendously. It just puts you in an easier mind space. There’s so much you have to deal with in one day, and I feel like meditation prepares you for anything that comes to you. You won’t flip your lid on the first thing that shakes you up a bit. It puts you at ease.

My favorite thing to eat in the morning is oatmeal. I add a little maple syrup, a little salt, and almond milk, and I’m set. Sometimes I’ll add cinnamon and some raisins and pumpkin seeds. I don’t need caffeine in the morning, but if I have to it’s usually through green tea.

I am a morning workout person. I don’t think I could really be as connected or focused in the afternoon if I didn’t do it… It’s definitely a HIIT workout, and I feel a lot better and more centered from doing it. Having my son really did a number on my body…”
