About the Event

Description

This virtual two-day workshop sponsored by the Delaware Division of Public Health aims to explore multiple dimensions of cultural competency in healthcare and within the workplace. It will advance participants’ understanding of health disparities and conditions that support health equity for marginalized populations. Participants will learn about barriers to actualizing healthy communities and how social determinants of health and structural and individual circumstances affect populations. Participants will engage in discussions related to combatting health inequities in society at large, as well as within their roles as healthcare leaders, practitioners, and front-line workers.
