Building Inclusive Clinics workshop opportunity

The Center for Health Policy is facilitating a series of Building Inclusive Clinics workshops around the state. The first two will be held in Kirksville and Hannibal in the coming months (see details below). The normal fee is $250 per person but due to funding from the Missouri Foundation for Health, the workshops will be offered for only $25 per person. The intended audience is anyone working on improving health, from administrators to community members, to health and public health professionals. For those not in Northern Missouri, additional workshops will be held in other parts of the state later this year.

The BIC is a one day introductory inclusion workshop that provides awareness-building through short presentations, experiential activities, reflection and dialogue. Participants will:

  • Develop an awareness of one’s self in the process of socialization and one’s role in breaking down oppressive systems,
  • Practice effective interpersonal communication skills,
  • Build knowledge and awareness around issues of race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, class, ability, age, religion, and appearance; and
  • Walk away from the day with a greater understanding about how to create inclusive care environments for co-workers, caregivers, and patients.
