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

Collaborative Efforts Tackling Health Inequities in Oklahoma with “Blood at The Roots” Conference.

In an effort to tackle health inequities in Oklahoma, two Tulsa health agencies, the Tulsa Health Department and Be Well Community Development Corporation, are collaborating. Reggie Ivey, representing both organizations, stated that they aim to identify barriers that prevent minorities from accessing equal healthcare opportunities. These disparities can have a significant impact on the lives of minority groups, including how they are treated in schools and neighborhoods.

To address these issues head-on, the groups have organized the “Blood at The Roots: Issues of Health Equity Conference,” which will take place on April 11 and 12 at OSU Tulsa. The conference aims to educate the public on how they can contribute to reducing health disparities in their communities. 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.

Prior to the conference, a free program on collective trauma and leadership will take place on April 10 at Langston University in Tulsa. Those interested in attending must register for the event. To learn more about the conference programs and registration details, visit the provided link.
