    April is National Minority Health Month

    April is National Minority Health Month, a time to focus on minority health issues and reducing health disparities. This year’s theme, “Bridging Health Equity Across Communities,” will address the social determinants of health and acknowledge the contributions of community partners across various sectors toward achieving health equity. By addressing and working to improve the social determinants of health—factors such as employment, education, justice, public safety and other social factors—we can strengthen the foundation of better health for our community. We invite all individuals and organizations to take action in helping communities achieve their full potential for health.

    On Saturday, April 15, in observance of Minority Health Month, please join AAHP for 2017 Community Day to celebrate those working in employment, education, justice, public safety and other public sectors that help build a stronger foundation for better health in Montgomery County. You can also get involved by joining the conversation at the Department of Health and Human Service's #Bridge2Health Twitter Town Hall on April 12 at 1:00 pm. AAHP will also participate in the National Public Health Association's National Public Health Week Twitter Chat on April 5, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

     

    We invite all individuals and organizations to take action in helping communities achieve their full potential for health.
