Inclusion with Intent in Health Care Speaker Series

Inclusion with Intent in Health Care


Research shows that gaps in patient care can occur when there is a lack of diversity or inclusion in the health care professionals who care for diverse patients.  As the U.S. continues to evolve into a majority-minority nation by 2043, those of us who have a role in increasing the inclusive attitudes of health care professionals should take special note of the opportunities so we may be part of facilitating a change.  Our plan is to feature speakers with professional expertise to explore three major diversity and inclusion issues and how they impact health care.  Deepening the understanding of such health care disparities among health care professionals will set the stage for improved health care in the U.S.


Who is invited

Students, faculty, staff, clinicians, employees of local hospitals, county departments of health, social service organizations, mental health professionals, and the community at large.  All interested parties are encouraged to attend!


Upcoming Events

Look forward to more details about speakers that will be coming to UC Blue Ash College for the 2016-17 academic year.
