Valerie A. Welsh, MS, CHES , U.S. Office of Minority Health, Rockville, MD
The session will begin with a brief overview of the Strategic Framework for Improving Racial Ethnic Minority Health and Eliminating Racial/Ethnic Health Disparities (the Framework) developed by OMH to guide the systematic planning, implementation, and evaluation of efforts across the country to improve racial/ethnic minority health and address racial/ethnic health disparities in a systematic way through a systems approach. The general overview is intended to set the context for the three presentations to follow.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Discuss at least two commonalities and two differences between the Framework presented in this session and other frameworks for addressing health disparities; 2. Identify and describe the importance of at least 3 “systems-level” factors that must be addressed to improve effectiveness and efficiency of efforts aimed at minority health improvement and health disparities reduction; 3. Identify at least 5 “key ‘take-away’ messages” from the Framework.
