The Office of Minority Health (OMH) is a congressionally mandated program located within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and serves as the focal point for economically disadvantaged populations. One of its many activities is the sponsorship of the OMH Resource Center, through which the public can access accurate and timely information on minority health concerns.
OMH maintains a full-time regional minority health consultant in each regional health administrator’s office in all 10 Public Health Service Regions in the United States. The regional minority health consultants serve as a focal point and technical resource on minority health issues within each region.
