Welcome to Health Equity Matters, an electronic newsletter intended to promote awareness of minority health and health equity issues that affect our work at CDC and in the broader public health community, support the achievement of our goal to eliminate health disparities, and foster ongoing communication and collaboration.

This issue of Health Equity Matters is published during a time of historic achievements and celebrations. Our office – the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity is celebrating our 25th anniversary. You also may have read or heard about the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech. Thousands of people will visit our nation’s capital August 24 -28, 2013 to commemorate that historic event. On October 1st, the new Health Insurance Marketplace will open for enrollment in every state in the U.S. Millions of Americans currently without health insurance will be able to apply. Read about these important events and more in this edition of Health Equity Matters.

CDC's Office of Minority Health & Health Equity (OMHHE) We welcome your comments, and encourage you to continue to circulate the newsletter among your colleagues and friends.
