Office of Minority Health

The Office of Minority Health (OMH) was activated in 1994 by authority of the Oklahoma State Board of Health. The Office of Minority Health was created, primarily, to address the disproportionately poor health of Oklahoma’s racial and ethnic minority population, as identified in various state and federal reports. The office is staffed by a Director, Program Specialist, and two Medical Interpreter/Translators. 

The mission of the OMH is to lead Oklahoma in improving the health status of Oklahoma’s minority and underserved populations by partnering, developing policies and implementing strategies to reduce and ultimately eliminate health disparities.

This mission statement is reflective of the agency's vision of creating a healthier Oklahoma through partnership and shared leadership.  The Office of Minority Health mission statement emphasizes the assessment of the health status of minority and underserved populations at the state and local levels that were identified by the 2003-2006 Legislative Task Force on the Elimination of Health Disparities in our state.
