Office of Minority Health Resource Center


Description

The Office of Minority Health (OMH) operates the OMH Resource Center (OMHRC), which serves as a free information and referral service on minority health issues for community groups, consumers, professionals, and students. It assists the Office of Public Health and Science and OMH in distributing scientifically valid and culturally-competent health information, encourages public participation in Health and Human Services (HHS) programs, and assists in conducting health campaigns. OMHRC maintains a minority health knowledge center and database; helps link people to HHS health services and resources; distributes publications; manages exhibits; publishes funding opportunities; maintains a list of volunteer resource experts available to the public; and conducts literature searches.

The Resource Center also provides capacity development services to smaller, underserved faith and community-based organizations. Principal areas in which assistance is offered include organizational infrastructure, cultural competency, community outreach, program design, communications, and training. Technical assistance is provided through a combination of regional skills-building workshops, on-site consultations, and telephone, mail, and e-mail consultations.
