At OMHRC, we like to think of ourselves as the connectors: we work directly with the public in answering any health questions, but the bulk of our job is to connect individuals with local organizations and sources of health care. We connect organizations with local health departments and with our Regional Minority Health Consultants. We connect organizations with each other so that promising practices are shared and scarce resources maximized.Organizations in Detroit, MI and Washington, DC
