The Office of Health Equity Advisory Committee 

The Office of Health Equity Advisory Committee (OHE-AC) is integral in advancing the goals of the office and advises in the development and implementation of the OHE Strategic Plan. The OHE-AC is comprised of representatives from applicable state agencies and departments, local health departments, community-based organizations, and service providers working to advance health and mental health equity for vulnerable communities. The OHE-AC consists of a broad range of experts, advocates, clinicians, and consumers who understand the important issues of health and mental health disparities related to unserved and underrepresented communities. The OHE-AC works with the Health in All Policies (HiAP) Task Force, and stakeholders, to provide a forum to identify and address the complexities of health and mental health inequities and to identify interrelated and multisector strategies. Additionally, the OHE Advisory Committee consults regularly with the Office of Health Equity for input and updates on the policy recommendations, strategic plans, and status of cross-sectoral work.

The Office of Health Equity is actively recruiting for new advisory committee members! If you are interested in giving a voice to vulnerable communities, advocating for health and mental health equity, or addressing the social determinants of health, then the Office of Health Equity Advisory Committee is a great opportunity to share your passion, expertise, and lived experience.

The OHE advisory committee application is open year round, however, we are currently focused on filling a large number of upcoming vacant seats before many of our current members term out in September of 2019. The deadline to be considered for the next round of advisory committee member vacancies ended on July 31, 2019.  However, we accept advisory committee applications on a continuous basis. The survey can be found here: OHE AC Application Survey
