Black Americans have a strong desire for doctors that understand them personally, including their racial and ethnic identity and the health risks associated with it.

Culturally competent health care is crucial for Black Americans

Action Steps:

    • Offer trainings in culturally competent care to your providers to ensure that they excel in creating strong relationships with Multicultural patients
    • Invest in internal diversity hiring practices to enhance representation, which can lead to greater empathy into the future.
