Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month

Published: Tuesday, November 1, 2022

We all play a role in advancing health equity for American Indian and Alaska Native communities.

The Office of Minority Health (OMH) has resources related to the social determinants of health in American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. This month, OMH is specifically raising awareness of:

  • AI/AN Maternal health disparities
  • Access to health care and culturally appropriate care for AI/AN patients
  • Environmental factors impacting the health of AI/AN communities
  • Indigenous food sovereignty and access to healthy foods
