Give Your Community a Boost!

National Minority Health Month logo

April is National Minority Health Month (NMHM), a time to raise awareness about health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minority populations and to encourage action through health education, early detection, and control of disease complications.

The 2022 theme is Give Your Community a Boost! As noted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, COVID-19 vaccination, including a booster, is one of strongest tools we have to end the COVID-19 pandemic that has disproportionately affected communities of color.

Empower people to get the facts and give your community a boost!
