As we enter the second week of National Minority Health Month, I want to let you know about some upcoming activities and encourage your participation in this important observance.
Partnerships are important to help reduce disparities in health and health care. We can best meet the challenges facing our communities by working closely with them to determine the best solutions that meet their needs.
I encourage you to become our partner in the conversation on health equity by submitting a Partnerships in Action story. The Office of Minority Health (OMH) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is highlighting community partnerships among individuals and organizations that share our mission to improve the health of racial and ethnic minority populations across the country.
OMH will share your stories throughout the year to highlight efforts that help achieve health equity and improve the health of the nation.
