Culture, Ethnicity & Health Care SIG
Continuing the tradition of its founders, the focus of our SIG is on research, education, and policy/advocacy about cultural issues (including race/ethnicity and linguistic issues), and how these issues impact children's health and healthcare.
- Bring together pediatricians from across the country and create a community of people with shared interests in culture, ethnicity, and healthcare.
- Define a set of urgent priorities and unanswered questions regarding cultural, ethnic, and linguistic issues in children's health and healthcare
- Identify potential projects for the group to work on together focusing on cultural/linguistic issues in the areas of research, education, and policy/advocacy
