National Minority Health Month begins on April 1, 2020, and for the second consecutive year the theme will be Active & Healthy as the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) teams up with the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) Move Your Way campaign and partners throughout the country in raising awareness about the important role an active lifestyle plays in keeping people and communities healthy.
According to the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines, even small amounts of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity throughout the day have some health benefits. Making simple changes to one’s daily routine can transform lives and reduce the risk of chronic diseases and other conditions that often are more common or severe among racial and ethnic minority groups.
To advance health outcomes through increased physical activity, OMH encourages you to share the Active & Healthy promotional materials with your partners. We will provide more information on OMH activities for National Minority Health Month in the coming weeks.
