What is health equity? What does health equity look like in older adult populations? Part 4, entitled “Uncovering Diversity – Cultural Humility and Safety When Caring for Black Older Adults” is presented by Mireille Norris, MD, FRCPC.

In this interactive learning session, Dr. Norris will present information that will assist healthcare providers to understand the experience of Black older adults within the healthcare system. Additionally, she will share practical tips and evidence-based tools that will enhance providers’ ability to deliver culturally safe care to their Black clients and patients.
