April is National Minority Health Month (NMHM), a time to raise awareness about the importance of improving the health of racial and ethnic minority communities and reducing health disparities. NMHM builds awareness about the disproportionate burden of premature death and illness in people from racial and ethnic minority groups and encourages action through health education, early detection and control of disease complications.

In observance of NMHM, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) will host several events, including a Fireside Chat with Dr. Louis W. Sullivan, president emeritus of Morehouse School of Medicine and former secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. 

The virtual event is scheduled for Monday, Apr. 22 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. ET. Watch via NIH videocast. For questions about NMHM events, email
