Breaking Down Health Literacy, Cultural and Linguistic Barriers in Integrated Care Settings

Communities of color with varying language and cultural backgrounds still face barriers accessing equitable care and health outcomes due to structural challenges, including racism.

Integrated care settings play a critical role in advancing equitable health outcomes by providing comprehensive, whole-person care that is culturally and linguistically responsive to best support these historically underserved populations.

Populations’ health literacy and cultural and linguistic characteristics must be identified, considered and addressed to successfully provide integrated and whole-person care.

Join CoE-IHS and our panel of health equity experts for an office hour session on Thursday, March 31, 2-3 p.m. ET to learn more and have your questions answered. To kick off this session, authors of the new toolkit, Access for Everyone: A Toolkit for Addressing Health Equity and Racial Justice within Integrated Care Settings, will introduce two brand-new modules that specifically address health literacy and cultural and linguistic literacy.
