San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services is hosting the 16th Annual (Statewide) Cultural Competence Summit, November 17-18, 2009. This two-day Summit will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, California.

 

This year's theme - "Embracing Social Justice and Equity to Build Healthier Communities" - is meant to unite service providers, community members and leaders, policymakers, consumers and family members, and others to address issues of the impact of culture and language on health disparities.

This is an opportunity for you to offer input and feedback about what you'd like to see at the Summit. Lunch will be provided.
