National Minority Health Month 2022

Join West Oakland Health Council in supporting National Minority Health Month 2022!

April is National Minority Health Month (NMHM). This year, West Oakland Health Council is joining the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) to highlight the important role individuals can play in their communities to help reduce health disparities and improve the health of racial and ethnic minorities and American Indian/Alaska Natives.

This year’s NMHM theme is Give Your Community a Boost! This theme focuses on the continued importance of COVID-19 vaccination, including boosters, as 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, West Oakland Health Council will be sharing information and resources on social media to highlight the importance of vaccines and boosters. Help us spread the word! Follow the conversation on Instagram, and use the hashtags #BoostYourCommunity and #NMHM2022.

Visit the National Minority Health Month website in English and Spanish to find resources, events, shareable social media messages, graphics, and information to share with your networks about Give Your Community a Boost!
