October National Health Observances: Breast Cancer, Health Literacy, and Health Care Quality


Each month, we highlight a selection of National Health Observances (NHOs) to help raise awareness about important issues that impact health in communities across the United States. This month, we’re talking about breast cancer, health literacy, and health care quality.

To help you spread the word, we’ve pulled together resources you can use to promote these NHOs. Join us this month in promoting health nationwide!

And please join us on Twitter by following @HHSPrevention — we’ll be posting special health literacy-related content throughout the month of October!

We hope we’ve made it easier for you to promote these important NHOs on your channels! Together, we can take steps to improve the Nation’s health.
