On Wednesday, September 13, 2023, from 7:00 PM- 8:15 PM ET, NHMA hosted our Cultural Competence & the Future of Healthcare Workforce Webinar supported by Johnson & Johnson. Key points covered included providing quality, culturally sensitive, & holistic care to underrepresented communities with limited access to healthcare.

With quality of care starting in the medical education system, physicians and members of the medical school faculty discussed how curricula focused on understanding the cultural backgrounds of patients can engage patients more effectively and provide better care for Hispanic and other underserved communities.
