    Incorporating Diversity Science into your Practice

    Course Description:
    This two-part course (September 11th and October 9th) is designed to introduce diversity science and cultural humility within the practice of healthcare. This course focuses on (1) centering the lived experiences of multi diverse communities; (2) conceptualizing bias on various social divisions of difference as factors that impact social determinants of health; (3) developing critical self-consciousness to better understand how one’s perspectives and experiences might inform their practice; and (4) implementing strategies to address bias in healthcare settings. 

    To maximize your experience, this is one course, divided over two sessions. You must attend the first session in order to attend the second. There will be asynchronous work to complete between the September 11th and October 9th sessions.

    Course Objectives:

    At the end of this two-part course series, attendees should be able to:

    • Describe diversity science and cultural humility as well as their impact on healthcare
    • Critically analyze the implications of bias on health care
    • Utilize tools to address and cope with bias in the healthcare setting
    • Apply and reflect on communication skills in cross-cultural clinical settings

    INSTRUCTOR: Matthew Town, PhD, MPH, is a citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and an Assistant Professor in the school of Social Work at Portland State University. Dr. Town is a behavioral health scientist whose research focus is on the intersections of cultural, diversity science, and health behaviors among American Indian and Alaska Natives, sexual minorities, and other marginalized communities. Dr. Town received his MPH in Global Health from Oregon State University, and his PhD in Sociology from the Portland State University. Prior to becoming an academic, Dr. Town worked at Tribal Epidemiology Centers in the Great Plains and the Pacific Northwest as well as Program Supervisor for the Disease Control and Prevention Team for Washington County (Oregon) Health Department. During this time, Dr. Town worked alongside clinicians, community advocates, tribal leaders, and citizens on numerous research and evaluation projects. With his experience and support, his current work examines the social and cultural determinants of HIV and substance use related risk behavior. He currently leads the strategic planning and programming for the College of Arts and Sciences at Pacific University as the inaugural Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fellow.

    This course will meet the new Oregon state licensee requirement for 1 CE of cultural competency training.  OAA members will be offered early bird registration prior to opening this up to non-members.
