Minority Health Month

Contact the Office of Minority Health

April Is National Minority Health Month

The Department of Health’s Office of Minority Health and Health Equity joined partners in raising public awareness about health and health care disparities that affect racial and ethnic minorities and how we are working together to accelerate health equity.

The 2016 theme, “Building Healthy Communities; Accelerating Health Equity Throughout Florida,” reflected our continuous and collective efforts to increase momentum toward achieving a state free of disparities in health. The observance served as a reminder of the progress made and commitment to minority health priorities. 

During the annual observance, we continued to raise awareness about health and health care disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minorities and our collective efforts to address them.  It was a call to action, a charge for all of us to unite towards a common goal of improving the health of our communities.  Every Floridian should have the chance to live a healthy life, regardless of who they are and where they live.

Florida’s then Office of Minority Health provided an online poster and flyer that could be downloaded to be displayed in organizations and at community events. Together with other Department of Health programs, local health offices and community partners, we remain committed to eliminating health and healthcare disparities.
