Special Offer: Introducing a New Communication Workshop

Culturally Concordant Communication and Care for African American Patients with Serious Illness: A Training Program Created by the African American Community for Clinician

  • Do you take care of African American patients with a serious illness?

  • Do you sometimes wish you could better understand the cultural values of the African American community so that you can provide them with outstanding care that takes into consideration the needs of the patient and family within a cultural context?

This training program is based on a series of videos with messages for clinicians on the cultural values and communication methods important to African Americans with serious illness. They were created over several months by a team of African American pastors, healthcare providers, and loved ones with a serious illness.   

Two sessions will be offered during the Virtual Summit. Once you are registered staff will assist you in selecting which session you will be in.

There is a $40 additional fee for this 3-hour special workshop.
