National Hispanic Heritage Month National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed each year from September 15 to October 15. This observance is an opportune time to recognize the generations of Hispanics who have enriched the United States through their unique history, culture, and achievements. It’s also a time to acknowledge that while health has improved in recent years for many people in the United States, some chronic diseases and conditions disproportionately affect Hispanic populations, and there is much more work to do. As part of CDC’s commitment to achieving health equity, DHDSP works to reduce disparities around heart disease and stroke and improve the cardiovascular health of all Hispanic persons.
