Care in Context: The Physician’s Role in Reducing Health Disparities

The Professional Development Committee also worked in collaboration with the Connecticut State Medical Society to develop Care in Context: The Physician’s Role in Reducing Health Disparities. This training program includes a comprehensive Training and Resource Guide, a 20 minute video including four learning modules and a complimentary Video Study Guide. Footage from the Faces of Disparity video was utilized for this project, as well as the adaptation of the Report on Cultural Competency Training and Resource Guide for healthcare providers (developed the first year of the Partnership). To date, over 1500 physicians have attended the CME program across the state. Contact the Connecticut State Medical Society to learn more!
