The conference and exhibit outreach program is an ongoing approach the Resource Center uses to promote in-house products and services. OMHRC staff coordinates the logistics for exhibits with the goal of increasing awareness of and disseminating information about OMHRC, as well as relevant, timely health materials on racial and ethnic minorities. The Resource Center develops brochures and publications, places free or reduced-cost advertisements in conference programs, encourages conference attendees to sign-up for inclusion on OMHRC’s mailing list, and when possible, arranges opportunities to speak at conference sessions about OMHRC’s services, cultural competency and related topics pertinent to the elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities.
Annually, OMHRC exhibits and conducts outreach activities at more than 20 conferences and related community events, reaching more than 130,000 health care professionals.
