Guest Speaker: Stephnie Farmerie, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, Nurse Practitioner at Clinica Hispana de La Paz
Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2018
Time: 9 am MT/ 10 am CT

As a health care provider, it is important to know your community and the culture of the community. How you respond to certain situations can impact the health of the community. While cultural competence is important within underserved communities, it is also important in providing care to mainstream communities as well.  We will discuss the terms cultural competence and cultural humility and the implications of these terms. We will also discuss how a person becomes culturally competent and the biggest indicator of cultural competence.
