National Minority Health Month 2018

Health Disrupted

Working with unconventional partners to drive collective impact for health equity

We all want the best for our family.

We want the best access to healthy food options, walkable paths, clean parks for activities, clean air for our children to breathe and healthy communities to survive and thrive in. Even though multicultural communities are diverse in our makeup, culture and traditions, we STILL face similar challenges when it comes to equity, health outcomes and access to care and healthy foods. Despite external setbacks, these diverse groups have developed unique, sustainable solutions tailored to fit our cultural and community needs that are DISRUPTING HEALTH.


This National Minority Health Month we ask you to join our squad of health disrupters, as we identify and celebrate entrepreneurs, activists, advocates, groups and individuals working to drive collective impact to achieve health equity.
