2017 Regional Symposiums

If you are a health care leader, human resources professional or diversity practitioner, this is one event you do not want to miss!  Join the Institute for education and best practice sharing in diversity management and disparities elimination at its regional symposium workshop.


With an increasingly diverse U.S. population and substantial evidence of racial and ethnic disparities in health care, it is critically important that health care professionals be specifically educated to address issues of culture in an effective manner. Disparities impede a health care organization's ability to deliver equitable care and improve population health. With this workshop, we will discuss national and local initiatives to increase cultural competency within health care organizations to eliminate disparities in care. Participants will learn strategies they can implement in their organizations.
