Systemic racism, social marginalization, and oppression have created disproportionate challenges in accessing quality general health care, mental health care, and substance use treatment services for communities of color. Integrating these services is a critical strategy for advancing health equity among historically marginalized populations, including Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+ communities, and rural communities.
The Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions (CoE-IHS) is pleased to announce the Advancing Health Equity Through Integrated Health ECHO.
Kicking off in late November, this seven-session ECHO series will give participants the chance to engage with other health care provider organizations through didactic presentations and case presentations on key issues related to integrated health and improving health equity within their organizations.
This ECHO will help participants:
- Practice cultural humility and actively reduce biases, racism, and trauma.
- Promote cultural and linguistic responsiveness among clients and staff of various intersecting identities, including race, class, gender, and sexual orientation.
- Implement whole-person and population health strategies that consider the social determinants/drivers of health of clients and communities.
- Build organizational practices that identify and prevent compassion fatigue among clinical providers and staff as they work to enhance equitable health care for all
Applications are due by 11:59 pm ET on Friday, November 10, 2023.
*Space in this ECHO learning series is limited.
