Office of Minority Health Announces Theme for 2015 National Minority Health Month

March 30, 2015

From an email sent by the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH):

As we approach National Minority Health Month in April, we are pleased to announce this year’s theme, “30 Years of Advancing Health Equity; The Heckler Report: A Force for Ending Health Disparities in America,” in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Report of the Secretary’s Task Force on Black and Minority Health (also known as the Heckler Report). This theme reflects our collective efforts to accelerate momentum towards achieving a nation free of disparities in health and health care and the ways in which the Heckler Report has served as a driving force for the monumental changes in research, policies, programs and legislation to advance health equity.

You can learn more about the Heckler Report and find tools and resources for celebrating National Minority Health Month by visiting www.minorityhealth.hhs.gov/NMHM.
