Cultural Competency II
Time & Location
About the Event
This year’s Cultural Competency virtual training will take a deep dive into understanding health disparities and the conditions that support health equity for marginalized populations. Participants of this workshop can expect to learn about various factors that act as barriers to actualizing a healthy community. This conference will address the social determinants of health and how structural and individual circumstances affect the populations we serve. Participants can expect to engage in discussions related to combatting health inequities in the larger society and within their various roles as healthcare leaders, practitioners, and front-line workers. This virtual two-day workshop aims to explore multiple dimensions of cultural competency in healthcare and within the workplace.
