Healthcare leaders are at the forefront of engaging with our communities on a regular basis, providing clincal care to diverse populations of patients across the region. Research shows, however, that health outcomes are negatively influenced by race, gender, sexual orientation and additional non-health factors, creating outcome inconsistencies aross all populations. This certificate takes a novel approach to increasing diversity, equity and inclusion awareness among clinicans by integrating topics of cultural competence and leading diverse groups with key areas of focus around the social determinants of health, with the goal of creating a health system rooted in the concept of population health.
