PREVENTION IS POWER – HAVING HEALTH INSURANCE IS SMART
April Is: National Minority Health and Health Disparities Awareness Month
During April, we mark National Minority Health Month by raising awareness about the health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minorities. This year's theme, Prevention is Power: Taking Action for Health Equity 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.
Everyone in America should have the chance to live a healthy life, regardless of who they are and where they live. There is NO existing reason why anyone in CT should not have affordable health coverage. For the poor there is expanded Medicaid (HUSKY A, B, C, D). The ACA provides subsidies for all who qualify to make health care accessible and affordable to everyone.
OneWorld Progressive Institute, Inc works daily with our community partners to design education programs that will help to combat health disparities, build healthier communities and contribute towards a stronger nation. It is within the power of each of us, regardless of our limited resources, to take proactive actions to improve our health. Join OneWorld and the National Office of Minority Health during Minority Health Month and throughout the year in taking action to achieve health equity because equity in health should not wait! Start today. See additional resources linked below, and watch OneWorld health education and literacy programs called "21st Century Conversations."
