Cultural Competence in Preparedness Planning

Is your organization committed to building cultural competency? Do you need communication resources to help? Please join CDC’s Emergency Partners Information Connection (EPIC) for a webinar on April 24 at 1 PM ET.

 When a disaster strikes a community, it affects people of various cultural backgrounds—sometimes disproportionately. Cultural competency can help public health communicators reduce this disparity. Please join CDC EPIC and CDC’s Office of Minority Health and Health Equity for this discussion. Julio Dicent Taillepierre, team leader for the Initiatives and Partnerships Team, will discuss why cultural competency matters during emergencies, the potential consequences of being culturally incompetent, and resources to help build your understanding.

 Participating in this webinar will qualify attendees for CEU, CHES, and CPH continuing education units. Closed captioning will be available.
