Celebrating Black History Month at HHS | HHS.gov

February is Black History Month–a time when we celebrate African American achievement and contribution throughout history. As President Gerald Ford put it, Black History Month (BHM) is a chance to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”

BHM is also a time to reflect on the issues of health, education and economics within the black community.  The Department of Health and Human services is currently working on a number of initiatives to advance health equity & bridge the gaps in health & well-being that still are too prevalent for the black community. Check out the blog below to learn more about these initiatives.
