A Union of Forces: Leveraging Diversity and Inclusion in Health Care
The African Health Summit will be held Saturday, October 7th from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. – breakfast to be served at 9:00. The demographics of patients in the U.S. are shifting. Health professionals are preparing to deliver care to the most diverse patient populations in our history. Providers and patients both face a different world today. Join Cheryll Albold, Ph.D., designated institutional administrator for the Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education, as she discusses how these shifts relate to health care, and how to improve the experience and outcomes for diverse groups of patients. She will examine the link between issues of patient population diversity, equity, cultural competency and health.
Dr. Albold received a master’s degree in counseling and student personnel services from Fordham University, in New York, and earned a doctor of philosophy degree in higher education and a minor certificate in educational research methodology, both from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She is a chapter author in the book, D.I.V.A. Diaries: The Road to the Ph.D. and Stories of Black Women Who Have Endured.
Local physicians will participate in a panel discussion that will address issues that exist in the Oklahoma City metro area.
