National Minority Health Month Highlights Medtech Efforts

This April, we recognize National Minority Health Month. It's a time to raise awareness of the health disparities faced by racial and ethnic minority, and American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. We can all work together to end these inequalities.

The theme this year is "Be the Source for Better Health: Improving Health Outcomes Through Our Cultures, Communities, and Connections." This theme emphasizes the importance of understanding how social determinants of health (environments, cultures, histories, and circumstances) impact these communities' overall health.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) is dedicated to working with partners to achieve this goal. They aim to provide high-quality, fair, and respectful healthcare that considers diverse cultural beliefs, languages, economic situations, and health literacy levels.

By providing culturally appropriate information, patients are empowered to make better health choices for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Johnson & Johnson is supporting more than 100 community-led organizations, including MedTech Color, to provide resources and tools to advance accessible, quality health care in the U.S. Read the original press release, which expands on Johnson & Johnson's commitment to advance health equity in the United States. Spread the good word.
