Somali Family Service (SFS) held a Cultural Awareness & Sensitivity Training for School Staff at Horace Mann Middle School on May 27th and 28th. The workshops focused on informing school staff on Somali culture and how it might impact students in and outside of the classroom. A diverse group of teachers, social workers, and other school staff were in attendance. The workshops included presentations and ongoing discourse between the speakers and the audience.
Somali Family Service aims to tackle some of the cultural barriers that contribute to the gap found in health care access and delivery of care. Understanding the cultural health beliefs and experiences of this diverse population of Somali patients is crucial to providing culturally competent care. On Thursday, May 21, 2015 we will hosting our 2nd Annual Health Summit.
