Event description

Description

During this full-day workshop, attendees will better understand cultural and linguistic competency definitions and principles. In the context of health care delivery and care, Dr. Avila will address race, culture and systems of generational oppression in our country. She will present data and literature on health disparities to further raise self-awareness of racial, ethnic and class biases. She will introduce the National Standards of Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care developed by the US Department of Health and Human Services. These CLAS standards must be integrated as a tool into organizations to advance health equity, improve quality, and help eliminate health care disparities by establishing a best practice for health and health care outcomes.
