We hope you find this information useful and will consider subscribing to the blog and sharing any thoughts or ideas with us at blog@businessgrouphealth.org.

Achieving Optimal Well-being by Reducing Disparities and Promoting Health Equity During National Minority Health Month

Employers can make a difference through intentional design of programs and policies to support health and well-being across diverse populations in the workplace, as well as through partnerships in community to impact areas where people live, work and play.
