April was observed as National Minority Health Month by MPH@UIS!
The theme for 2016 “Accelerating Health Equity for the Nation,” was chosen to raise awareness of the health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minorities and how we are working together to accelerate health equity.
Healthier communities mean lower health care costs, which translate into a stronger economy and a more productive, competitive America.
Dominique participated in the MPH Study Abroad to The Gambia in 2014. He continues to work improve healthcare globally. By drawing attention to the factors that help minority populations achieve wellness, we are also building a stronger foundation for our nation’s increasingly diverse populations to prosper for generations to come.
