CT Oral Health Initiative (COHI) is offering an interactive course for all dental, medical, and mental health providers to discuss the importance of health equity and the need for medical interpretation services in health care. Participants will have the opportunity to examine their own and others’ prejudices, and how they affect their practices. They will also hear lessons learned from a dentist who practices in a multi-cultural setting. Our presenters are from the Hispanic Health Council, the UCONN Health Center, Language Link and DHMAS Office of Multicultural Healthcare Equality.
