Health Equity and Advocacy Task Force (HEAT)

February 2023: HEAT Spotlight on Black History Month

Throughout February, HEAT will be focusing on professionals from across our respective fields of medicine, psychology, public health, and sexual violence prevention. Black History Month is a time to celebrate the richness of African American history and culture. This year's theme is Black Resistance: A Journey to Equality. HEAT would like to recognize that Black History is American History and though Black History Month is in February, the study of our history should not be limited to one month.
