The local Office of Minority Health was created in 2000 after then-Governor Jeb Bush signed the Patient Protection Act at the Pinellas County Health Department. This historical act created the Closing the Gap program which aims to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities in Florida. Because health disparities cross barriers beyond race and ethnicity to areas such as income, access to care and gender, the Pinellas County Health Department consolidated OMH efforts into the Office of Health Equity in 2012.
