Speak My Culture is a two-part virtual series that allows healthcare workers to better understand the challenges facing the Latino patient community and to obtain ideas, tools, and strategies to prepare them to offer culturally appropriate and sensitive care to their Latino patients.
Participants do not need to speak Spanish to take this training. Each session will address how to build rapport and trust with Latino patients while bridging the cultural gap. Providers will better understand cultural issues related to each health topic and how best to provide education in a way that will enhance compliance with medical and lifestyle recommendations. This approach is highly suitable for those with limited time who would like to build rapport with their Latino patients in an efficient manner, whether knowing the language or not.
The first session will focus on diabetes care while the second session will address other health care topics including mental health, maternal health, and vaccines. Please note that while these sessions will be recorded, the recordings will only be available for a short period of time.
We strive to host inclusive and accessible events that enable all individuals, including those with disabilities to engage fully. Please let us know of any accommodations that will assist your full participation.
