Celebrate Black History Month in Good Health

2013 Black History Month Poster February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate the contributions of African Americans to the fabric of the United States. Black people have helped shape the nation in various ways, influencing every sector of society. But rates of chronic diseases and conditions on average remain significantly higher for African Americans, resulting in poorer quality of life and lower life expectancy. This February and beyond, the Office of Minority Health encourages you to make smart health decisions that will help you live longer, healthier and happier.
