Meeting the Needs of Our Diverse Clients: Why Culture Counts in Health Care


Date: February 24, 2011

Time: 1:30 PM ET - 2:30 PM ET

Type: Webinar

The older population is becoming more culturally diverse. What does this mean for the services and care we provide – and how we provide them?

Join us for this free webinar in our Aging Briefing Series sponsored with IlluminAge.

Speaker: Marcie Freeman, M.Ed., Director of Outreach and Recruitment for the Institute for Aging Research, Hebrew SeniorLife, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and Chair of Boston’s Multicultural Coalition on Aging, a group of over 50 organizations serving culturally and linguistically diverse older adults

  • What's involved in understanding cultural diversity in the context of aging services and senior care – including the importance of moving from generalizations about “other” cultures to an appreciation for the complexity of every person’s life.
  • The topic of “cultural competence” – reframing it from a “curiosity” to an activity that is now an essential part of successful health care practice.
  • The implications today’s cultural diversity has for both professional practice and personal attitudes and behavior – and practical next steps organizations can take.
