Office of Minority Health
The Office of Minority Health (OMH) is dedicated to providing minority health data and technical assistance to local agencies working to improve the health status of minority populations.
Funded through the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, the Office of Minority Health is part of a national initiative to localize the concept of racial and ethnic health equity. The OMH serves as a central location for the coordination of community health efforts targeting health improvement in Summit County's African-American/Black, Asian, Hispanic/Latino and Native American populations.
The OMH is building local system capacity as a "clearinghouse" for information on minority health status and health data, programs and services, and funding related matters. Its strategic goal, developed with input from the community, is to decrease health disparities in Summit County through the provision of information to the community regarding what disparities exist; how community organizations in Summit County are addressing these disparities and how they might collaborate to build complimentary programming; how community organizations can evaluate their programs and services; and what funding is available to communities for minority health programs/services and research.
