Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (May 1-31)
and
National Women’s Health Week (May 14-20)

In May, the CMS Office of Minority Health (OMH) recognizes two observances: Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (May 1-31) and National Women’s Health Week (May 14-20). For Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we pay tribute to the generations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have enhanced our communities. During National Women’s Health Week, CMS OMH joins the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health in its efforts to help women take steps for better health. Listed below are some of the many ways individuals, organizations, and communities can join CMS OMH in its efforts to improve health equity for these groups and others.
