Taking a Look Back at National Minority Health Month

MinorityHealthMonth_postcard_2013Today is the last day of National Minority Health Month. We have participated in a number of activities this month to promote this important month. As advocates for minority communities, we work every day at the policy level to protect health equity for underserved populations. And, through our Institute for Hispanic Health, we administer programs designed to equip these communities with the tools they need to live happy and health lives.
