Join us for a Twitter Chat: Prevention is Power

NMHM14_idea10_maiandra_2As part of National Minority Health Month, we’re joining the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies for a Twitter chat on Wednesday, April 23, at 1:00pm ET to engage and educate key stakeholders on strategies that alleviate chronic disease disparities. We’ll be joining five other REACH Minority National Organizations (MNO), including Asian Pacific Partners for Empowerment, Advocacy and Leadership (APPEAL), Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, and Black Women’s Health Imperative. REACH is a national initiative vital to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) efforts to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health.

The theme of National Minority Health Month is “Prevention is Power: Taking Action for Health Equity”. It emphasizes the critical role of prevention in reducing health disparities. It is a call to action, a charge for all of us to unite towards a common goal of improving the health of our communities. To join, just include #REACHMNO in your tweet and follow:
