Thursday, April 19, 2012 National Minority Health Month Focuses on Unity in Community April is National Minority Health Month. This year's theme, "Health Equity Can’t Wait. Act Now in Your CommUNITY," is a call to action and unity for state and local offices of minority health, health departments, and all organizations and partners involved and invested in reducing health disparities. To support community efforts in the goal of ending health disparities and promoting health equity, the Office of Minority Health offers a National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities Toolkit for Community Action. The toolkit provides community members with the information and resources they need to help engage fellow citizens and local media as they spread the word about health disparities and educate others about the impact disparities have in the lives of individuals and the greater effect on society.
