Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County is celebrating Minority Health Month in April with free events all month long!

This year’s theme is Better Health - Through Better Understanding. The focus is to improve health outcomes for racial and ethnic minorities, and to empower individuals to live healthier lives. 

"Minorities have historically been at a disadvantage when it comes to having the support and resources needed to live a healthy life,” said Jasmine Young, Project Manager, Local Office on Minority Health. “Public Health is working hard to help remove existing barriers to good health, that are present in where we live, work and play.”

The five goals of Minority Health Month are to:

  1. Provide crucial information to allow individuals to practice disease prevention 
  2. Promote healthy lifestyles 
  3. Showcase healthcare providers and resources 
  4. Highlight the unequal health of Ohio’s minorities compared to non-minorities 
  5. Increase ongoing community support to improve minority health
