In preparation for next week’s presentation, please answer the following couple of questions: What are your training needs related to implementing Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) standards at your health center/organization? Suzanne_Speer Previous survey responses include general information on CLAS for staff and providers; tools and resources to implement CLAS trainings, skills for staff to adapt to cultural differences, and building/improving policies and procedures. Janelle Ashe Freda, We really enjoyed your presentation last week and all you are accomplishing at Central City Concern. After reviewing your presentation slides and discussion among ourselves at RCCHC in Ahoskie, NC we had a couple of questions for you. 1) Would you be able to share what types of data you have used in the past or currently to drive decisions/programs around equity and inclusion? Do you use data from OCHIN specifically to drive what programs your teams focus on? 2) What data / benchmarks do you use to determine the effectiveness of your programs? What benchmarks do you use to report to the board on effectiveness of the program overall as well as individual programs? Suzanne_Speer Hi Janelle, I am going to pass these questions along to Freda and will be sure to share her answers with you! Janelle Ashe Thanks Suzanne. I had emailed them to her but wanted to put in the discussion group as well so she could share with everyone. Joe Lee Hi, Everyone!

Many thanks, Joe P.S.
