Tulsa Health Department and Be Well Community Development Corporation are two health agencies in Oklahoma that have joined forces to address health disparities faced by minorities. Reggie Ivey, who represents both organizations, emphasized their goal of identifying barriers that impede health equity in these groups. These disparities can affect how minorities are treated in schools and neighborhoods, ultimately impacting their life expectancy.

As part of their efforts, the groups have organized a “Blood in the Roots: Equity Issues in Health” conference on April 11 and 12 at OSU Tulsa. The conference aims to educate the public about how they can contribute to addressing health inequalities. Ivey emphasized the importance of taking action at different levels, such as in the neighborhood, workplace, and through political engagement such as registering and encouraging others to vote or contacting political officials.

Before the conference, a free program on collective trauma and leadership will be held 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, please visit the given link.
