According to the release, the virtual event will culminate a robust calendar of Minority Health Month activities from educational presentations to updates on local initiatives addressing community health needs.

“In our effort to improve health outcomes for all Montgomery County residents, Public Health will continue to: provide crucial information to allow individuals to practice disease prevention; promote healthy lifestyles and healthcare resources; highlight the health disparities of Montgomery County’s minorities compared to non-minorities; and increase ongoing community support to improve minority health,” according to the release.

The event will also help promote the best practices towards advancing health equity.
