National Minority Health Month

Did you know that April is National Minority Health Month? Presented by the US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, this year’s theme is “Health Equity Can’t Wait. Act Now in Your CommUNITY.” This is a call for health agencies, organizations, policy makers, and individuals to act now in order to reduce health disparities in our community.

Our BACVOLLife Living Health initiative is our way of helping to reduce these disparities. Unfortunately, the African American community suffers from many illnesses and diseases at a much higher rate than our peers from other ethnic groups. April is a great time to finally get that physical exam that you’ve delayed for years, become more active by beginning an exercise routine, and develop healthier eating habits. BACVOLLife is here to support you in your efforts, and we would love to hear about your journey.
