Join us at 8 a.m. on Thursday, August 25 to discover what we’ve learned about the need for culturally responsive health care in Colorado and how it’s associated with better health outcomes and more positive experiences with the health care system.

No two people have the same needs and experiences when they visit a doctor. Characteristics like language, cultural identity, sexual orientation, and previous experience with trauma can all shape a person’s health care needs. These barriers, combined with issues related to health literacy, contribute to health disparities such as poor general and mental health status.
