A Year of Health planner was created to provide multicultural communities with information and resources about staying healthy and managing conditions of the bones, joints, muscles and skin. It was developed by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS). As part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the NIAMS supports scientific medical research that helps people live healthier lives. The facts and information in A Year of Health planner are based on proven studies.
In addition, The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Disease (NIAMS) of the National Institute of Health (NIH) created e-toolkit to help support outreach efforts to multicultural communities. The materials included can be used as a helpful guide to begin your own dissemination strategies.
