YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO SUFFER NEGATIVE HEALTH OUTCOMES...IF YOU ARE A MINORITY
The Coalition For Minority Health Issues believes that everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life. Although no one can precisely say why these disparities exist, our goal is to implement evidence based community projects to improve the health outcomes of minorities.
We will accomplish this goal by conducting research on the various health disparities facing minorities in this country and use our findings to design interventions in minority communities.
The Coalition for Minority Health Issues is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, started out as a passion project committed to a single goal; improving the health outcome of minorities. We accomplish this goal by conducting research on the various health challenges within local communities and connecting them with available resources to support and improve minorities well being nationally.

Increased screenings could improve these health outcomes however, Black men report significantly lower screening rates when compared to white men nationally.
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our partners are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community and delivers the support they need, when they need it.
