Posted Apr 3, 2020
Category: National

April is National Minority Health Month and the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health (OMH) is focusing on safe ways you can stay physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.

With Americans advised to stay in and around their homes, OMH encourages everyone to participate in #ActiveAndHealthy, a national social media campaign to highlight ways we can stay active while following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19. 

Below are five ways you can get informed, get involved, and get connected this National Minority Health Month:

  1. Join the conversation by using the #ActiveAndHealthy hashtag and sharing your stories, tips, resources and best practices with the community
  2. Take the OMH weekly Active & Healthy Quiz as part of Trivia Tuesdays to test your knowledge of physical activity and nutrition while also getting resources on how to support your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
  3. Spread the word virtually by downloading the National Minority Health Month Toolkit full of resources, sample social media messages, and downloadable graphics.
  4. Submit your virtual community events and activities to the Office of Minority Health Events Calendar and share photos from your virtual event on social media by using the hashtags #ActiveandHealthy, #EmotionalWellness and #NMHM2020.
  5. Sign up for email updates on OMH’s website to learn more about National Minority Health Month, and follow OMH on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.

Becoming active & healthy in and around your home, while doing your part to slow the spread of COVID-19, is possible through simple changes to your daily routine — so get involved this #NMHM2020.
