In September, OMH held the virtual symposium: Advancing the Response to COVID-19: Sharing Promising Programs and Practices for Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities. The symposium featured promising practices from national, state, tribal and local experts about promising practices in fighting the pandemic. Visit the COVID-19 Response page to access the symposium and presentations.
The HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) is working with the Morehouse School of Medicine through a cooperative agreement to develop a national network of state, territorial, tribal and local public and community-based organizations to help address the impact of COVID-19 among racial and ethnic minority populations. Morehouse School of Medicine established the National COVID-19 Resiliency Network (NCRN) which will share important messages and linkages to healthcare and social services in communities across the nation and in areas hardest hit by the pandemic.
OMH and Morehouse School of Medicine invites organizations and individuals across the country to be a part of this initiative. To sign up for updates and become a part of this effort, please visit the NCRN website.
