Minority Health Month Statewide Expo scheduled for Tuesday, March 24, 2020 is Postponed

Thank you for your willingness to participate in or attend our agency’s Statewide Minority Health Month Expo and Awards ceremony this year. Your presence has historically made this event one that engages and encourages attendees to make their and their family’s health a priority, not just during minority health month, but every day.

Nevertheless, it is with our heartfelt thought and concern that the Commission informs you that our 2020 MHM Expo and Awards ceremony has been postponed. This decision is in alignment with Governor DeWine’s Executive Order 2020-01D (E.O.), which declares a state of emergency to protect the well-being of the citizens of Ohio from the effects of COVID-19.

We certainly appreciate the time and effort you invested in preparing to participate in or to attend this year’s Minority Health Month Expo and Awards Ceremony. Rest assured, that we are making every effort to reschedule a subsequent Statewide Health Expo and Awards Ceremony to recognize this year’s minority health award recipients, show appreciation for our sponsors, showcase our grantees and to raise awareness of healthy lifestyles

We ask that you all stay safe, be well, and stay tuned for more information coming soon!

In appreciation,
Angela C. Dawson,
Executive Director
