This webinar took place on June 9th, 2021, with Dr. Gary Ferguson.
As we work to address health equity, many of us strive to be culturally competent. Framing our efforts through the lens of cultural humility enriches our mission to be as inclusive as possible. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) defines cultural humility as “a life-long process of self-reflection and self-critique whereby the individual not only learns about another’s culture, but one starts with an examination of their own beliefs, and cultural identities.” In this talk, we will explore how to apply this perspective to the work we do in promoting healthy communities.
Dr. Ferguson, ND (Unangax/Aleut) serves as Faculty and Director of Outreach & Engagement at Washington State University’s Institute for Research and Education to Advance Community Health (IREACH) located in the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine
