Implementation Science: What Is Cultural Humility & How Does It Support Health Equity?

The Meadows Institute is continuing our 2021 Speaker Series with our fourth webinar event on Implementation Science: What Is Cultural Humility and How Does It Support Heath Equity? Join us for this important discussion with Marcy Melvin, LPC, on June 23! During this session, Marcy will discuss the intentional shift from “cultural competence” to “cultural humility,” the power of words and the language we use, ways to promote the practice of cultural humility across your organization, and the impact this change can have on your organization’s work with children, youth, and families. She will also address considerations in selecting an evidence-based practice that meets the varying cultural needs of the people you serve and how cultural humility is critical to achieving health equity.

ABOUT THE 2021 SPEAKER SERIES

Implementing Evidence-Based Practices for Children, Youth, & Families

Throughout 2021, the Meadows Institute will welcome experts in implementation science, evidence-based practices, health equity, financing, and more to help Texas mental health providers deepen their understanding of how to roll-out and sustain best practices in mental health.

While many of these principles can be applied to a broad population, we will focus on evidence-based practice implementation efforts targeting children, youth, and their families. If you’ve ever wondered what makes some initiatives take hold and others slowly fade away, you’ll want to mark your calendar for these events.

Information on both upcoming and past events is available on the series project page. See our Events page for details and registration of upcoming events.
