AA and NHPI Heritage Month

May is Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) Heritage Month!

This month is an opportunity to recognize the many ways AA and NHPI history, culture, leadership, and innovation have influenced all facets of life in the United States. This annual observance celebrates the diverse cultures, languages, and religions of AA and NHPI communities and individuals.

This year, the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority (OMH) is observing AA and NHPI Heritage Month through its theme,  Be the Source for Better Health: Improving Health Outcomes Through Our Cultures, Communities, and Connections, which calls on each of us to understand how the unique environments, cultures, histories, and circumstances (known as social determinants of health, or SDOH) of AA and NHPI populations impact their overall health.
