Minority Health Month (MHM) is a 30-day health and wellness campaign that was instituted by the Ohio Commission on Minority Health (OCMH) and is now celebrated nationally. This year, the Greater Dayton MHM theme is Better Health Through Better Understanding. This year’s theme focuses on improving health outcomes for racial and ethnic minority and AI/AN communities by providing them with culturally and linguistically competent healthcare services, information, and resources.
