REACH Minority National Organizations Twitter Chat
As part of National Minority Health Month, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies will host a Twitter chat on Wednesday, April 23, at 1:00pm EST to engage and educate key stakeholders on strategies that alleviate chronic disease disparities. The chat will feature the six 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, Black Women’s Health Imperative, and National Council of La Raza (NCLR). 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. Twitter makes it easy for you to get involved in the conversation. Just include #REACHMNO in your tweet and follow:
