From the Director: Celebrating National Minority Health Month
Dr. J. Nadine Gracia Deputy Assistant Secretary for Minority Health Director, Office of Minority Health U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
It is my honor to invite you to join the HHS Office of Minority Health in observing National Minority Health Month throughout April. The theme this year, Accelerating Health Equity for the Nation, will promote the extraordinary efforts underway by HHS and the Obama Administration to reduce disparities, advance equity, and strengthen the health and well-being of all Americans. The observance of the 30th anniversary of the HHS Office of Minority Health will also begin during National Minority Health Month. Since its establishment in 1986, the HHS Office of Minority Health has served as the HHS lead agency for improving the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of health policies and programs to help eliminate health disparities.
