|Subject:||Designating April 2017 as "National Minority Health Month" in Pennsylvania|
|In the near future, I plan on introducing a resolution recognizing April 2017 as "National Minority Health Month" in Pennsylvania.
Launched by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health, National Minority Health Month is an inclusive initiative that addresses the health needs of African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, and other minorities. The primary goal of National Minority Health Month is to strengthen the capacity of local communities to eliminate the disproportionate burden of premature death and preventable illness in minority populations through prevention, early detection, and control of disease complications.
Please consider joining me in recognizing April 2017 as "National Minority Health Month" in Pennsylvania.
Introduced as HR261
