CTAHR’s Dietetics program has partnered with the Hawaiʻi Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for a free online workshop on Health Equity Language. Guest speaker Dr. Jackie Ng-Osorio will discuss “achieving health equity” – reducing stigma and bias through our written and verbal communication so everyone can have a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible.
Because the words we use to talk about health, people, communities, and populations can help us in achieving health equity, this workshop will focus on teaching participants the strategies to address people inclusively and respectfully, while avoiding language that perpetuates negative stereotypes.
“Please join us this Thursday! This is a great opportunity to learn and apply skills on how we can use our words and communication to promote health equity,” says Monica Esquivel of the Dept. of Human Nutrition Food and Animal Sciences.
Support is provided by an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Diversity and Inclusion Award. The event is around the corner, so Register now. For questions, contact Monica.
