Description

Quarterly Partnership Meeting & Free Training event on Monday, November 5th, 2018 from 1:30pm-3:00pm at the Hendricks County Government Center, Mtg. Rms 4/5 on second floor, Danville, IN. The first 30 minutes will be an update on the 2019-2021 Community Health Assessment for the county, and the following hour will be the training.

The topic of the training is "Bias Awareness and Cultural Competency," a topic that is extremely important for each of us as professionals in health and related areas to consider as we seek to educate, advocate, and collaborate to make Hendricks County a healthier place to live and be for all residents.

Our guest speaker will be Ms. Antoniette Holt. Antoniette is currently the Director for the Office of Minority Health for the Indiana State Department of Health.
"Her work involves specialized knowledge of state government, public health, cultural competence, diversity, health equity, and minority health concerns and issues. Previously she served as the deputy director and epidemiologist for the Office of Minority Health and the Office of Cultural Diversity and Enrichment. She has conducted research and led community outreach projects related to cultural competency and health disparities. Ms. Holt has been responsible for the execution and investigation of a variety of reports and studies focused on minority health concerns. Antoniette is considered an expert in her field and is often consulted and invited to provide valuable input on urgent matters that involve underserved communities within Indiana and the nation. She has been a guest orator at various local and national functions, conferences, and seminars in relation to minority health, health equity, and cultural diversity training. Not only has Ms. Holt committed her career to public health, but also, embraced the field through her education having a Bachelor of Science in Public Health, and Master in Public Health, both from Indiana University (Bloomington). Nationally, Antoinette sits on several boards and committees. She is very involved within Region V Office of Minority Health initiatives and programs and is the current President for the National Association of State Office of Minority Health (NASOMH). During her time off, she is committed to helping others. She enjoys volunteering at her local church and with other organizations. Ms. Holt thoroughly enjoys taking part in mission trips and serving others around the world. She has traveled to West Africa, South Africa, and Haiti. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Minority Health is very near and dear to Ms. Holt, and she makes it her personal mission to educate everyone on the importance of equality in health care for all."

I encourage you to get this on your calendars far in advance and plan on attending! This is going to be a really good one, so feel free to invite a friend or colleague or spread the word on facebook/twitter, etc.
