National Minority Health Month

Event URL:
Date/Time: April 2016

April is National Minority Health Month, commemorated every year nationally and in a growing number of states and localities. The Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust and the National Minority Quality Forum celebrate National Minority Health Month with their Annual Disparities Leadership Summit & Awards Dinner. National Minority Health Month is an inclusive initiative that addresses the health needs of African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, and other minorities. The goal is to strengthen the capacity of local communities to eliminate the disproportionate burden of premature death and preventable illness in minority populations through prevention, early detection, and control of disease.
