The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Bureau for Public Health has named Taya R. Williams as coordinator of the Office of Minority Health.   

OMH's mission is to eliminate health disparities for vulnerable populations as defined by race or ethnicity, socio-economic status, geography, age, disability status, risk status related to gender and others identified as at-risk for health disparities.

Williams will coordinate with leaders of other Bureau for Public Health programs and activities aimed at disease prevention, health promotion, service delivery, research, risk reduction, healthier lifestyle choices and the use of health care services.

The Huntington resident earned a bachelor's degree in social work and a master's degree in public administration, both from Kentucky State University.
