APRIL IS National Minority Health Awareness Month


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."

In Hamden, New Haven and West Haven, for those with Comcast, OneWorld programs are scheduled to air on Citizens Television, Comcast Chan. 26, Sundays at 7pm.  If you have AT&T Uverse, find our programs on Channel 99 (drop-down menu).  We are listed by towns: Branford, East Haven, North Branford, North Haven and Wallingford.  We are also on Comcast  Channels 10, 15, 18 and on Charter Communications, Chan. 21.

Seeing Rural America Through a Clearer Lens

In an interview with Shelterforce editor Miriam Axel-Lute, Jim King of FAHE in Appalachia and Bill Bynum of HOPE in the Mississippi Delta, two longtime LISC partners, discuss the challenge of persistent poverty in rural communities. Investing in rural areas—and dispelling stereotypes about them—they argue, is critical for the health of the entire country.

The Warmth of Family, the Taste of Mexico

We launch our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month this year with the story of the Villegas family, owners of Los Originales Tacos Árabes de Puebla in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Natives of Puebla, Mexico, Merced and Alfredo Villegas run one of the city’s most beloved food trucks, and are emblematic of Hispanic immigrants to the U.S. who have not only enriched the cultural, social—and culinary—terrain of this country, but stoke the economy through their energetic entrepreneurship, creativity and resilience.
