The men of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity are in Chicago for their 105th anniversary convention, and they're spreading a message about the importance of good health.

More than 10,000 people are attending the convention.

On Saturday morning, some members took part in a Black Barbershop Health Initiative. They stopped by President Barack Obama's former barbershop to check customers' blood pressure and screen for diabetes.
