Culturally Inclusive Care: Addressing Regional Health Disparities by Patient Population
The goal of the conference is to disseminate research, exchange information, and share successful methods of addressing health disparities across specific patient populations—including, children, women, and elderly—in the classroom and clinical environments. Conference is open to all faculty across multiple healthcare disciplines, including Primary Care Providers, Nurses, Social Workers, Public Health Professionals, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Exercise Physiologists, Nutritionists, Educators, Researchers, Non-Profit Community Based Agencies, and Graduate Students.
Topics that will be addressed include:
• Women’s Health Panel—healthcare access via telehealth, contraception access and education, and women who experience trauma (how healthcare providers can make a positive impact)
• Pediatric Health Panel—healthcare access, childhood obesity, and behavioral health
• Geriatric Health Panel—dementia, palliative care, and caregiver burnout
