Join Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County’s Local Office on Minority Health for the inaugural "Greater Dayton Minority Health Month Expo" on Friday, April 29th, from 8 AM to 12 PM. This virtual event will culminate a robust calendar of Minority Health Month activities being hosted for the community, and will include educational presentations on minority health, updates on local initiatives addressing community health needs, and promotion of best-practices towards advancing health equity.
This year's theme is "Memorializing the Past for the Betterment of the Future", and it acknowledges the necessity for Montgomery County to go beyond "normal" in recovering from the COVID-19 crisis. Presenters include The Dayton Equity Center, Ebenezer Healthcare Access, and The Hope Center for Families; in addition to a keynote provided by The Wright Path Consultancy.
Gem City Market gift cards and free book copies will also be randomly given away to participants. Visit the Public Health website (https://www.phdmc.org/minority-health-month-2022) for more information.
Throughout the pandemic, it has become even more apparent that many health disparities exist among minority groups. Public Health is committed to reducing the burden of chronic disease within vulnerable populations.
In our effort to improve health outcomes for all Montgomery County residents, Public Health will continue to: provide crucial information to allow individuals to practice disease prevention; promote healthy lifestyles and healthcare resources; highlight the health disparities of Montgomery County’s minorities compared to non-minorities; and increase ongoing community support to improve minority health.
