 BUILD STRONGER, HEALTHIER COMMUNITIES THIS APRIL

  • Next week is Every Kid Healthy Week! Not every child is fortunate enough to be healthy and safe in a loving home—but every child deserves to be. Support Every Kid Deserves and share health resources, and volunteer next week to improve children’s health and wellbeing.
  • 1 in 68 children, and their families and loved ones, are affected by autism. April is Autism Awareness Month; share autism health resources with families in need.
  • April is National Minority Health Month— support ending Health Disparities and share health resources. Too many individuals, children, and families can’t get the help they need or are disproportionately affected by poor health due to their economic status, race or ethnicity, where they live, and other factors beyond their control.
  • Mother’s Day, May 13, begins National Women’s Health Week. Support mom and the women in your life through Women’s Health and women’s health resources.
