Pre-Conference Workshops

Talking with Patients About the Impact of Racism on Health

Sunday, July 23: 1-4 p.m. ET

Without technical or lived experience, clinicians and other care providers may feel uncomfortable bringing up racism, and patients might find it jarring if not incorporated into conversation delicately.

This session explores the relationship between racism and health, when and how to discuss it with patients, and what to do when patients need support. Learn ways to improve your capacity to discuss and address racism and other forms of discrimination using a trauma-informed and compassionate approach.

Management and Leadership Training for Retention

Sunday, July 23: 1-4 p.m. ET

Employees often leave managers, not jobs. In today’s healthcare environment, great managers are crucial for employee retention, and adequate training is necessary for leadership growth.

Join this session to learn about the training managers need to advance as leaders and retain employees. Discover the technical and soft skills required to develop well-rounded leaders at your health center or other organization. You will also have the chance to begin developing manager training plans during this engaging workshop.
