The theme of the 2010 conference is “Improving health care for culturally diverse populations: A new place on the national health agenda.” From state initiatives to accreditation standards to national health care reform, improving the health of culturally diverse populations is on the agenda of our country’s health policymakers. With the aim of reducing persistent health disparities and improving quality and access, integrating culturally and linguistically appropriate services into health care has figured prominently on the health policy agendas of the US Congress, The Joint Commission, the National Committee for Quality Assurance, the National Quality Forum, and the Institute of Medicine. Join us as we discuss the implications of these initiatives and others, in the context of the tenth anniversary of the CLAS Standards.
Submissions will be accepted through February 1, 2010.
The conference planning committee announces a call for presentation proposals for the 2010 conference.
