Training Overview
In order to strive to eliminate health disparities, public health practitioners must go beyond cultural competency which is part of the process rather than an end goal. This webinar will discuss concepts of cultural humility such as maintaining a lifelong commitment to self-evaluation and self-critique, helping fix power imbalances where none ought to exist, and striving to develop partnerships with people and groups who advocate for others. Dr. Murray-Garcia will also share practical tools and resources to promote positive change through leadership and systems-level partnerships in communities to eliminate health disparities.

The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.

This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites. Participants will need a broadband internet connection (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are preferred browsers) and computer speakers. For technical support, please contact
