Cultural Competency and Health Disparities Awareness

Cultural Competency and Health Disparities Awareness

One of the themes of the Aurora LIGHTS program is to provide educational awareness and training in cultural and health disparities for students at all age levels. This vital part of the program aims provides resources for students, parents and teachers to become effective agents of change in the quest for health equity. Some of the activities include students reading selected books and viewing movies and documentaries with facilitated discussions about how cultural differences and social inequities impact the health of individuals.
