Establish respectful, trusting relationships with underserved communities through on-going outreach and relationship building. Collaborate with religious and cultural organizations in program development and in the promotion of health education. Conduct practical research to understand underserved communities’ cultural norms and values in order to be better prepared to partner in the design and provision of effective health education programs. Collaborate with medical professionals, health organizations and underserved communities to insure the cultural relevance and sensitivity of existing health education materials and programs. Use the CCH website to publish culturally specific health education research, materials, and opportunities, as well as links to other relevant health and medical organizations and materials. Initiate community leadership development in underserved communities through recruitment, training and support of key community members who take leadership roles in establishing new and relevant health education programs.
A key part of the CCH strategy is...
Collaboration with medical professionals, health organizations and underserved communities. To insure the cultural relevance and sensitivity of existing health education materials and programs, we include religious and cultural organizations.
