Health centers serve 1 in 7 people of color in the United States. In order to provide culturally appropriate care and reduce health inequities across race and ethnicity, we must have the ability to discuss race, racism, and how they affect our work. These issues are at the heart of the health center movement, it was the reason for our founding.
NACHC’s Ground Work training is designed to help the health center field level-set on the concepts of racial identity, privilege, bias, and structural and institutional racism. Ground Work provides the background information and the tools for any health center staff to engage in health equity and anti-racism work in their community.
Ground Work learners will…
- Gain an understanding of the concepts of social identity, race, and ethnicity.
- Gain an understanding of systemic racism and how it affects the health of patients.
- Identify ways to recognize and address implicit bias and microaggressions in interactions with patients and colleagues.
- Online, on-demand. Learners can begin Ground Work anytime and complete the course at their own pace.
- 8 sessions. Each session takes between 30 -90 minutes to complete.
- Sessions include video instruction, knowledge tests, and opportunities for self-reflection.
Ground Work is appropriate for all health center roles, from administrative staff, providers, outreach staff, and social service teams.
