Program Overview

A primary aim of this broadcast is to provide public health professionals with a broad overview of cultural diversity issues with a focus on race/ethnicity and gender. Health disparities, a major public health problem of interest, is discussed using cultural diversity as the conceptual framework for thinking about the role of the public health community and health policy solutions for addressing these issues. As a part of this process, broadcast participants are exposed to introductory cultural diversity concepts. In addition participants also have an opportunity to engage in critical thinking regarding the current social and health problems that impact the public’s health, particularly racial minorities.
