“Your Voice” Webinars

We think it’s important to keep learning all the time. With support from The California Endowment and others, DiversityRx is hosting online webinars on a variety of cross cultural health care topics. Interest is high — we have had between 300 and 1000 participants at each session, which usually features two expert presenters, write-in Q&A during the session, resource documents, and post-webinar follow-up.
