Let’s take a look at power in health care. In this workshop, we’ll consider how bias and privilege play out in current healthcare cultures, environments, and practices, including who benefits and who’s marginalized.
But then we’ll talk about what we can do about it. We'll focus on how to connect social justice theory with health literacy and cultural competency practices to develop healthcare environments that value diversity and inclusion. Join us for this exciting experiential learning session about how to reshape our organizations and practices to serve as stronger allies for our patients and clients.
This 5-hour workshop will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Space for this workshop is limited!
Note: Tickets for this workshop and the Summit on Friday, October 21st are sold separately. If you want to attend the Summit, too, you can register here.
