The Cultural Inclusion Institute’s yearly conference explores cultural issues in healthcare and nursing. This year the theme is Linking Social Determinants of Health to Health Disparities and Cultural Inclusion. The conference is a unique chance for students and professionals to talk about diversity in healthcare, strategies for reducing disparities and advocating for social justice.
