Events & Conferences

Annual Conferences offer Network and non-Network members opportunities to learn about relevant and cutting edge topics in cultural and linguistic competency. Topics range from improving and increasing the quality of care and services to our diverse communities, reducing and eliminating health disparities, learning best and promising practices in the various fields, health literacy, trauma-informed care, and many more.

The conferences are ways of improving our collaboration with other state, regional and community agencies, forging partnerships, and sharing our expertise and gaining more knowledge in cultural competency. The Network held its first Annual Conference in 2010.
