Join OMH’s activities during National Minority Health Month!

April is National Minority Health Month, and the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) invites you to participate in #NMHM17 events as we continue to work toward health equity.  The theme for National Minority Health Month is Bridging Health Equity Across Communities, which emphasizes the collaborative, community-level work being done throughout the nation to help achieve health equity. Below is information about OMH #NMHM17 activities and links to materials that we ask you to use to promote the observance throughout month and share with your networks.
