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

Tulsa Health Department and Be Well Community Development Corporation are collaborating to address health inequities in Oklahoma. Reggie Ivey, representing both agencies, stated that they aim to identify barriers that hinder health equity in minority groups. These disparities can affect how minorities are treated in schools and neighborhoods, ultimately impacting their life expectancy.

One of the initiatives taken by the groups is 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. Ivey emphasized the importance of taking action at various levels, such as in neighborhoods, workplaces, and through political engagement like registering and encouraging others to vote or contacting political officials.

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