Recently, I have been talking more and more about connecting diversity and cultural competency to quality. It is not a new conversation but it is in fact one that has been on-going yet not embraced as a concept that gets healthcare organizations to raise the level of dialogue to that with more inclusive framework or positioning so to speak. Aligning cultural competency and health disparities consistently with quality can lead to what I feel can create a more powerful impact on all those who can affect transformation.
I came across an article out of the Journal of the National Medical Association (JNMA) by Drs. Saha, Beach, and Cooper that speaks to it and I wanted to share it with you today.

Make it a great day!
