About the Indiana Black & Minority Health Fair:
“The core goal of the Indiana Black & Minority Health Fair is to increase minority awareness of chronic diseases, and how to prevent them. Increasing minority awareness of diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and cancer is not just the goal of the Office of Minority Health or of the Health Fair. The goal is also at the heart of the Indiana State Department of Health’s mission, which is to promote and provide essential public health services.
Aligned with this mission, the Indiana Black & Minority Health Fair also works towards raising public awareness of the health issues that disproportionately affect minorities. By tracking self-reported race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, health behaviors and risk factors, researchers can determine causative agents or reasons that morbidity, chronic illness, and mortality differ between particular racial and ethnic subgroups. This allows state health representatives to formulate programs to address these health disparities, and, most importantly, positively impacting the health and well-being of the Hoosiers who attend.”

Under his leadership with support from the 2017 General Assembly, Indiana is taking the state’s workforce to the next level with a focus on the high-priority industries and high-demand jobs driving Indiana’s 21st Century economy forward.
Two million Hoosiers need additional training to compete in the 21st Century workforce, and there will be over 1 million job openings in Indiana due to retirements and the creation of new jobs by 2025. Whether you’re a Hoosier looking for a better-paying job or an employer looking for a better-skilled workforce, Indiana’s Next Level Jobs initiative can help.”
