Join us as we use the art of film to create an interactive cultural learning experience. This film series raises the cultural awareness, knowledge and skills of health care providers, health care employees, community partners and anyone interested in learning more about diverse cultures. It is designed to promote enhanced patient/client interactions and health outcomes; create respectful and productive relationships in the workplace; and foster collaborative relationships with communities to find solutions that address and eliminate health care disparities. The highly acclaimed, multi-award winning Diversity & Health Series is produced by Tina Martelon from the Kaiser Permanente-Colorado Region, and directed by Michael Day of Clear day Films.
