A cultural competency seminar was hosted by the Maternal and Child Health Leadership Training Program on Friday, Nov. 30. The day-long program focused on cultural influences on health access, including a multicultural panel discussion on help-seeking strategies with Dr. Manisha Joshi, Dr. Abraham Salinas, and Dr. Deanna Wathington. Participants also learned about organizational level cultural competence strategies from Dr. Teresa Nesman, and practiced the use of an organizational assessment tool. Seminar attendees included students and staff from several USF Health departments and community organizations.
The Maternal and Child Health Leadership Training Program holds seminars throughout the year on cultural competence, family-centered care, and interdisciplinary practice.
