The Office for the Elimination of Health Disparities (OEHD) provides assistance to unserved or under-served communities. It promotes the adoption of healthy life-styles and the delivery of acceptable preventive and primary health services within the minority communities. It also provides technical assistance, both organizational and funding, to organizations which provide public health services that impact minority communities.
The OEHD Team will also provide training to regional staff to develop a more culturally competent and sensitive work force and assist DSHS programs in removing barriers that impede minorities from taking advantage of health services.
