April is National Minority Health Month
April is National Minority Health Month – a time for us to celebrate and honor the diversity in our community and to raise awareness about the unique health challenges faced by people who are Asian, Latino, African American, American Indian and of other racial and ethnic backgrounds.
We encourage everyone to take part in National Minority Health Month by learning more about the health disparities that exist, and by taking steps to promote health and wellness in your own life and community.
During Minority Health Month, we will share information to help people learn more about staying healthy. Make sure to follow us on Facebook!
