Culturally Responsive, Evidence-Based Practices For Engaging Communities Of Color: Series 1 & 2  

Workshop Description:

Cultural diversity and the emphasis on evidence-based care have sparked dialogues regarding best practices for engaging communities of color. Given the current climate and disparities in care, we have a responsibility to embody cultural humility when serving clients. As the needs of the healthcare industry, including state- and national-level mandates, require implementing culturally responsive care, this workshop has a central aim in ensuring that providers have the necessary tools to deliver culturally responsive, evidence-based care.
