The Dayton & Montgomery County Local Office on Minority Health is a program funded by a grant from the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, in partnership with Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County.

Background

In 2007, the Ohio Commission on Minority Health (OCMH) moved to create an infrastructure and presence at the local level through the establishment of the Local Offices on Minority Health within urban areas in Ohio. This initiative became the first of its kind by a state agency in the nation. To develop a model for the nation, the OCMH spearheaded the creation of national performance standards and/or core competencies for Local Offices on Minority Health in collaboration with the National Association of State Offices of Minority Health (NASOMH). The program is dedicated to eliminating health disparities in minority communities through monitoring, and reporting the health status of minority populations, informing, educating, and empowering people, mobilizing community partnerships and actions, and developing policies and plans to support health efforts.

Mission

Provides leadership that is dedicated to reducing and eliminating disparities and inequities in the health status of the minoritized populations within the City of Dayton and Montgomery County.

Vision

Strives to achieve health equity for both the City of Dayton’s and Montgomery County’s minoritized populations.
