Every April, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office of Minority Health observes National Minority Health Month to raise awareness and highlight the importance of improving the health of racial and ethnic minority. Minority populations continue to lag behind whites in a number of areas, including quality of care, access to care, timeliness and outcomes, as well as face problems with provider biases and health literacy issues among others.
FCOA invited PrimaryOne Health’s Chief Executive Officer, Charleta Tavares, to speak at the seminar. Charleta is a local, state and nationally recognized, health, human services, cultural competence and health equity advocate and policymaker. Click here to watch the Seminar.
