April is National Minority Health Month (NMHM). This year Community Health Centers of the Central Coast is joining the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) to highlight the important role each of us can play in our communities to help reduce health disparities and improve the health of all racial and ethnic minorities and American Indian/Alaska Natives.
This theme for this year is Give Your Community a Boost! Focusing on the continued importance of COVID-19 vaccinations, including boosters, we want to ensure everyone knows this is one of the strongest tools we can use to protect others from the COVID-19 pandemic that has disproportionately affected communities of color. The theme also supports the many other efforts happening across the country to advance health equity.
During NMHM, CHC will be sharing information and resources on its social media channels to shine a light on the importance of vaccines and boosters. Please help us spread the word – follow the conversation on the CHC social media channels below and use the hashtags #BoostYourCommunity and #NMHM2022.
