Culturally Responsive Health Care Award

The Culturally Responsive Health Care Award is presented to the individual or group that has made conscious decisions to practice culturally responsive health care. This entails activities such as finding out a patient’s history of illness, their beliefs around health care and alternative treatments, and taking care to prevent any language barriers from getting in the way of quality care.

Nominations can be made for individuals or groups, and the recipient can be faculty, staff, or students. The winners of the award will be announced in early December and they will be honored at the UI Health Care Human Rights Week speaker.
