Last Wednesday, El Centro’s Health Navigators attended the Kansas City’s Cultural Competency Learning Community, a monthly meeting open to community organizations that want to learn more about cultural topics and strategies. Corstella Henley, who is a consultant from the regional Office of Minority Health, presented about C.L.A.S. standards (Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services). These standards were designed to advance health equity, improve quality, and eliminate disparities but they can really be used at all levels and types of interactions. To learn more about the standards and how your organization might benefit from them, visit Think Cultural Health’s website below:
