April is National Minority Health Month (NMHM). This year, the NMHM theme is #VaccineReady. Getting the facts about the importance and benefits of vaccines, especially the COVID-19 vaccine, is so important to all communities, including racial and ethnic minority communities. Vaccination is such an important step to help us all get back on the path of being with our families, schools, workplaces and communities.
More resources and ways to engage with minority health initiatives are below.
If you would like more information about minority health topics, the Library for Health Information (LHI) can help you find trustworthy and reliable resources. Please contact the LHI librarian with your questions.
