Collaborative Effort by Tulsa Health Agencies Aims to Enhance Health Equity in Oklahoma

Tackling Health Inequities in Oklahoma: Tulsa Health Department and Be Well Community Development Corporation Join Forces to Host Conference on Health Equity”.

In an effort to tackle health inequities in Oklahoma, two Tulsa health agencies, the Tulsa Health Department and Be Well Community Development Corporation, have teamed up. Their goal is to identify barriers that prevent health equity among minority groups. These disparities can affect how minorities are treated in schools and communities, ultimately impacting their life expectancy.

As part of their collaboration, the groups are organizing the “Blood at The Roots: Issues of Health Equity Conference” on April 11 and 12 at OSU Tulsa. The conference aims to educate the public on how they can contribute to addressing health inequities. Reggie Ivey, representing both agencies, emphasized the importance of taking action at various levels, including neighborhoods, workplaces, and through political engagement such as voter registration and contacting political officials.

Prior to the conference, a free program on collective trauma and leadership will take place on April 10 at Langston University in Tulsa. Interested attendees must register for the event. For more information and registration details, visit the provided link.
