The Office of Minority Health (OMH) focuses on health concerns and issues evident by the disproportionate number of preventable deaths, diseases and disabilities in minority and underserved populations. The core of these concerns highlights their goals to eliminate health disparities among Oklahoma’s minority and underserved population. The Office of Minority Health generally concentrates on seven major health disparity areas including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, HIV/STD, infant mortality, immunization and tobacco prevention. 

Additionally, the Office of Minority Health participates in local and national minority health care initiatives through its collaboration with local community organizations and with the federal government (Region VI, Federal Office of Minority Health, U.S. Public Health Services). Specific activities are detailed below:

Cultural Competency Training
