Map and Directions

Come join the Office of Minority Health (OMH) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in a town hall-style discussion to examine the historical, social, economic, physical and biological factors that contribute to increased rates of premature death among racial and ethnic minority men. This event will allow men an opportunity to sound off on the social determinants of health they face.

The goal for each session is to begin conversations on key areas of health focus for racial and ethnic minority men, due to their disproportionately worse health outcomes compared to other men.  The topic areas for discussion include: Access to Services, Mental Health, and Prevention.

This initiative advances the HHS & OMH mission and its National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA) key priority by:
Understanding the story behind the data
Learning about the community thoughts/perceptions, resources, and desires
Building public trust
Identifying specific goals and actions for future policy and program development


WE INVITE YOU to JOIN the DISCUSSION!
