Montgomery County Council proclamation of National Minority Health Month

On Tuesday, April 24, the Montgomery County Council presented a proclamation in recognition of National Minority Health Month to the chairs of the Asian American Health Initiative Steering Committee, African American Health Program Executive Committee, and Latino Health Initiative Steering Committee. Research has shown that members of some minority groups may suffer substantially more health problems and expect to live 20 years less than others because of where they live, their race, their education and their income. With the commitment that every American should have the opportunity to live a healthier life, the members of the Council’s Health and Human Services Committee — George Leventhal, Craig Rice, and Nancy Navarro — presented the proclamation. AAHI thanks the County Council and Steering Committee for their continued support.
