Join Us for an Online Minority Health Townhall
By Sherice Perry Dillard, HHS Special Assistant for Specialty Media and Broadcast
As part of our observation of National Minority Health month, we would like to invite you to participate online in a Minority Health Townhall on Tuesday, April 24th at 12:30 p.m., streamed live from The White House.
The event will be an interactive, open dialogue with stakeholder groups and the media to highlight what the health care law, the Affordable Care Act, is doing to improve the health of racial and ethnic minorities.
This year’s theme, Health Equity Can’t Wait. Act Now in Your CommUNITY!, is a call to action for all of us to work together to reduce health disparities. Join us and learn more about how the Administration is working to improve the health of minority communities and achieve health equity for all Americans.
