National Minority Health Month
National Minority Health Month, observed in April, is sponsored by the Office of Minority Health. Recognizing that health is the key to progress and equity in all other things, Dr. Booker T. Washington proposed the observance of National Negro Health Week in April 1915. He called on local health departments, schools, churches, businesses, professional associations, and the most influential organizations in the African-American community to "pull together" and "unite… in one great National Health Movement."
National Minority Health Month grew from that observance into what is today a month-long initiative in April, sponsored by Office of Minority Health, to advance health equity across the country on behalf of all racial and ethnic minorities.
