Hispanic Heritage Month 2020

Hispanic Heritage Month takes place every year from September 15 to October 15. During the month, the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) will celebrate the culture, achievements and contributions of Hispanics and Latinos in the United States. OMH will focus on raising awareness about the health disparities impacting the Hispanic/Latino community and promote physical activity, healthy nutrition and regular doctor visits to help improve overall health, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

OMH will also join HHS efforts to promote the influenza vaccine during the 2020-2021 flu season and amplify resources about the importance of Hispanic participation in clinical trials.

For events, resources, and materials, please visit the OMH website and the OMH Spanish website.
