We are Celebrating National Minority Health Awareness Month in a Big Way!
Community Hero Action Group is proud to host the 1st Annual Pennsylvania Black Health Matters Conference on April 8, 2021. The purpose of this event is to
- Increase awareness,
- Provide accurate information, and
- Share strategies to lessen the burden of disproportionate access to quality healthcare.
HISTORY OF NATIONAL MINORITY HEALTH MONTH
Booker T. Washington established the National Negro Health Week 106 years ago, which has since grown to the month-long initiative that is observed today. In 2002, National Minority Health Month received support from the U.S. Congress with a concurrent resolution (H. Con. Res. 388) that “a National Minority Health and Health Disparities Month should be established to promote educational efforts on the health problems currently facing minorities and other health disparity populations.” The resolution encouraged “all health organizations and Americans to conduct appropriate programs and activities to promote healthfulness in minority and other health disparity communities.
