“30 Years of Advancing Health Equity, The Heckler Report: A Force for Ending Health Disparities in America.” –http://www.minorityhealth.hhs.gov/nmhm/

This quote up above is the theme for this year, April 2015, National Minority Health Month.

During National Minority Health Month, the HHS Office of Minority Health joins with its partners in raising public awareness about health and health care disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minorities and efforts to advance health equity.

“This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Report of the Secretary’s Task Force on Black and Minority Health.”   –http://www.minorityhealth.hhs.gov/nmhm/

Despite the progress towards ending health disparities, racial and ethnic minorities continue to face significant health disparities.
