Oregon House Passes Cultural Competency

Cultural Competency for Health Professionals 4-10-13

Cultural Competence Training for Health Professionals (HB 2611), led by communities of color who face significant and persistent health disparities and backed as a top priority by the Urban League of Portland and Oregon Health Equity Alliance (OHEA), passed the Oregon House of Representatives on a 46-12 bipartisan vote.  Congratulations to all health equity advocates who engaged with their legislators in support of the bill. It’s not over. On to the Senate! We will need your continued support to make cultural competency a reality in Oregon. Stay tuned; stay engaged. Read local media coverage of the bill here.
