Cultural Competence and Preventing Health Disparities:

Health disparities are an ongoing issue in the American healthcare system. These health disparities often occur because systematic barriers make accessing health care more difficult for some groups. This program looks at the social determinants of health and some ways culture affects health beliefs. The goal of this training is to expose the learner to these ideas and tools to prevent health disparities.

This course is approved by the Oregon Health Authority’s Office of Equity and Inclusion as an educational training all health care professionals.
