October National Health Observances: Health Literacy, Breast Cancer, Youth Sports, and HIV/AIDS Awareness

National Health Observances

Each month, we highlight National Health Observances (NHOs) that align with our mission to improve health across the United States. In October, we’re raising awareness about health literacy, breast cancer, the benefits of youth sports, and HIV/AIDS in Latinx communities. We’ve gathered some resources below that you can use to join the conversation and spread the word about these NHOs with your networks...

Reframing Aging

Health and Well-Being Matter. ODPHP Director RDML Paul Reed, MD.

In observance of Healthy Aging Month, Patricia D’Antonio, Executive Director for the National Center to Reframe Aging recently joined ODPHP Director Paul Reed for a discussion on the myriad ways we encounter, and even perpetuate, ageism in our everyday lives, and the importance of dispelling negative public perceptions of older adulthood and revisiting aging as not something that we “arrive at”, but rather a continuous process that we experience throughout our lifecycle.
