Utah Office of Health Disparities Reduction
The Utah Department of Health (UDOH), Center for Multicultural Health has been replaced with the Office of Health Disparities Reduction (OHD). Dulce Díez, MPH, CHES, has been selected as its manager.
Díez says the new office will have a broader mission than the former Center for Multicultural Health, which focused only on racial and ethnic minority health. “As the new Office of Health Disparities Reduction, we will continue our commitment to reducing racial and ethnic health disparities, but we are also looking for opportunities to address health disparities by geography and income,” she explained.
