Developing Equity Leadership through Training and Action (DELTA)

What is DELTA?

DELTA is a comprehensive leadership program developed for healthcare, community, and policy leaders who are committed to advancing health equity throughout Oregon. The program provides strategic training, coaching and consultation to strengthen the capacity of Oregon's public health and healthcare systems to eliminate inequities and improve health outcomes.

In alignment with the Oregon Health Authority's (OHA) strategic goal to eliminate health inequities in the state by 2030, the DELTA program plays a crucial role in equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to promote Health Equity. As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, it has become increasingly vital to have leaders who are deeply rooted in the principles of Health Equity as they develop effective mechanisms for creating sustainable and transformative change.

Program objectives

  • Build the capacity and commitment of Oregon's healthcare leaders to eliminate the inequities that result in health disparities.
  • Develop collaborative approaches and partnerships to promote community wellness and health equity across Oregon's health systems.
  • Inspire leaders to act individually and collectively as change agents to address the challenges and institutional barriers to achieving optimal health for all Oregonians.
