Clinical Cultural Diversity Series (CCDS)
Learn about the Clinical Cultural Diversity Series (CCDS), a speaker series that explores intercultural communication in the clinical setting.
CCDS focuses on developing cross-cultural competencies, improving patient care, and providing individuals with comprehensive educational experiences to make KUMC a more diverse and integrated campus.
The goal of this program is to provide insight and to educate about the differences and/or discrepancies in our healthcare system, specifically with underprivileged/underserved groups. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend as well as contribute to the conversation.
Previous speakers have presented on:
- “Religion and Healthcare”
- “Comparing Health Care Systems”
- “Working with an Interpreter”
- “To Serve or Not to Serve: Who is actually being served?”
- “Back to the Motherland: Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) - A Story of Kidney Disease”
