Description

The Mountain States Regional Health Equity Council (RHEC) aims to end health disparities in Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. One of its main priorities is to provide education and awareness of cultural and linguistic competency within the region. The RHEC is hosting a webinar training series on the history of tribes and treaties, utilization of Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services standards (National CLAS Standards) and cultural sensitivity when working with tribal communities, and the impact of cultural needs assessments. Upon completion of this webinar, the participants will be able to do the following from the specific tribal perspective:

  1. Describe the diversity of existing health care in Indian Country and explain the wide and varying differences in tribal health perspectives and cultures of health
  2. Share examples of best and promising practices of cultural competency aligned with the CLAS Standards
  3. Increase awareness of health equity challenges in tribal communities through the lens of health and cultural needs assessments
