The Barbershop and Salon Health Outreach Program Toolkit (Toolkit) is a collaborative effort between the Colorado Black Health Collaborative (CBHC) and the Kaiser Permanente African American Center of Excellence (AACE), a community organization based in Denver, Colorado. The Toolkit is designed to empower community health workers, clinicians, and volunteers to launch, sustain, and monitor the success of an effective barbershop and salon outreach program.
