The Response to Covid-19 meeting features several things. Firstly, promising practices, programs, and strategies for combatting the pandemic in order to achieve health equity in communities of color.

In addition, join OMH as they bring together public health leaders from state and local levels. These leaders discuss ways to address COVID-19. However, they focus on racial and ethnic minority and American Indian and Alaska Native populations.

Here’s more about the conference from their website:

The U.S. Department of HHS OMH is hosting a virtual symposium on Thursday, September 17, 2020 on the impact of COVID-19 among racial and ethnic minority and American Indian and Alaska Native groups. The meeting features good practices, programs, and strategies for combatting the pandemic. So we can achieve health equity in communities of color.

OMH invites our partners at the regional, state, tribal and group levels to join us as we convene public health leaders from state and local levels to discuss their response to address COVID-19 in racial and ethnic minority and American Indian and Alaska Native populations.

OHM’s mission

The OMH at the U.S. Department of HHS was created in 1986 as one of the most important goals of the 1985 Secretary’s Task Force Report on Black and Minority Health. Their mission is to improve the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of health policies and programs that will help eliminate health gaps.
