Cultural Competency Training

Delivering high quality care is an important facet of primary care at Federally Qualified Health Centers. Equally important is ensuring that culturally appropriate and sensitive care is administered alongside primary care. In order to address this important issue, MACHC hosts a Cultural Competency Training annually, which is open to all health professionals (both clinical and administrative) seeking to learn more about cultural senstivity in the FQHC industry. Below is a sample agenda for the Cultural Competency training for 2014. Stay tuned for information regarding our 2015 Cultural Competency Training!
