July Refugee and Ethnic Populations Health Convening

Filed in Event News, Health Program News by on June 9, 2017


Join NSDI (Nile Sisters Development Initiative), in partnership with the Office of Minority Health Resource Center for a three-day workshop with sessions covering technical assistance and capacity building for board members and senior executives of health-oriented, ethnic community-based organizations (ECBOs) and training for African and immigrant community health workers.

This event has three purposes:

  • to provide evidence-based information to increase and strengthen the competence of ECBOs to provide culturally and linguistically proficient services to underserved minority populations
  • to build organizational development and engagement with mainstream health organizations, public policy, and other stakeholders
  • to promote collaboration and community building by refugee leaders and community members

Additionally, the Refugee and Ethnic Populations Health Convening aims to provide training to health outreach workers and gatekeepers who work with recently arrived refugees and other ethnic minority populations, specifically as it relates to the prevention and treatment of HIV / AIDS and hepatitis B and C.

Target participants for this event include board members and senior executives of ECBOs, CHWs, public health professionals, medical practitioners, and other health-oriented stakeholders.
