Cross-Cultural and Diversity Inclusiveness Training for Researchers May 18

 

InCHIP’s Community-Engaged Health Research Core is very excited to announce that we will be offering a workshop on Cross-Cultural and Diversity Inclusiveness for Researchers.

The training will take place on:

  • Thursday May 18th 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM in Room 204 of the Ryan Building at UConn Storrs.
  • Breakfast will be provided at 8:30 AM (vegetarian/vegan and gluten free options included)
  • Due to the interactive nature of this event, the workshop is limited to 23 people. Reservations are required, so SIGN UP NOW!

This training will help each of us examine our own attitudes and assumptions about individuals and communities who have identities, experiences, and beliefs different from our own. And it will expand the skills that we need to effectively work together with individuals and communities on addressing important public health issues through research.

We are very excited that this training will be provided by Grace Damio, MS CD/N, who is the Director of Research and Training at the Hispanic Health Council In Hartford. She has extensive experience conducting this training, and she has worked for many years with University researchers and with communities in Hartford.

 

The Hispanic Health Council’s Cross-Cultural & Diversity Inclusiveness (CC&DI) Training Program was established in 2003, and has since been tailored to train over 2,000 participants of diverse backgrounds. In 2013-2014, HHC partnered with the Connecticut Hospital Association, St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, University of Connecticut Health Center, The Hospital of Central Connecticut, State of Connecticut Department of Education/Support for Pregnant and Parenting Teens Program, and CT-RI Public Health Training Center at Yale School of Public Health, to train over 500 participants.
