This grant supports the first National Conference on Health Care for Culturally Diverse Populations. Recent growth in ethnically and culturally diverse populations in many urban, suburban, and rural areas has broadened the relevance of diversity issues as they relate to health care quality and access. To date there has been no forum for bringing together interested individuals and organizations to address cultural competence within the broader context of the health care system. The National Conference on Health Care for Culturally Diverse Populations will feature developing partnerships between communities, providers, payers, and policy-makers to improve understanding and design of culturally effective health care systems. This first conference will focus on appropriate models, policy issues and financing of health systems.
