Celebrating Black History Month

This year’s national theme is Black Health and Wellness, a powerful message for our time.

This month is a valuable time for learning and taking action in order to carry lessons and movement throughout the entire year.

  • Everyone can explore the origins of Black History Month and this year’s theme with information from the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) in Washington D.C.: Black History Themes – ASALH
  • Dive deeper into the topic with a prepared list of eight readings on Black health and wellness: ASALH 2022 Theme Materials
  • Keep an eye on the Facebook and LinkedIn accounts of our friends and clinical partners at UW Health for a series of profiles that celebrate the contributions of its Black community.
  • Keep an eye on the school’s Facebook and LinkedIn accounts throughout the month for more information and resources.
