Toledo-Lucas County Commission on Minority Health


 

Minority Health Month (MHM) was created in Ohio in April 1989. The first celebration featured 81 community-initiated events, with the goal of holding one event to be conducted each day throughout Ohio. Minority Health Month was designed to be a 30-day inclusive, high visibility, wellness campaign.

In 2000, MHM became a national celebration.
