Promoting a Culture of Health: Examples from the National Association of Hispanic Nurses
“Strengthening Integration of Health Services and Systems”: That is one of the four “action areas” in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Culture of Health Framework, and nurses can lead the way. Hear how two chapters of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses have led efforts in their communities to expand the public’s access to health care services, including insurance that makes the services affordable.
- Nohemi Alvarez-Landa, MSN, RN, FNP-C will discuss the Kansas City chapter’s work on health insurance literacy, Affordable Care Act outreach, and health screenings.
- Susana González, MHA, MSN, RN, CNML will review the Illinois chapter’s actions, including nursing leadership development through mentorship and the resulting community partnerships.
Both chapters’ efforts are funded by the U.S. Department Health & Human Services, Office of Minority Health.
Participants will learn about the programs’ successes and challenges, as well as opportunities to integrate Culture of Health work into their diversity plans.
