Health Equity Education for Healthcare Professionals in Washington State
Write your awesome label here.

As healthcare professionals, we are committed to providing the highest quality care to all our patients. However, decades of research and thousands of studies show that there are healthcare disparities for many historically marginalized groups in the US and that implicit bias is a major contributor. To help address these disparities, we have created our courses to provide you with essential education on unintended and implicit bias — how it forms, how it manifests in healthcare and contributes to inequities, and how to prevent it from influencing the care you provide your patients.
