Inclusion Academy: Caring for Military & Veteran Patients
May 20, 7:00 am to 8:00 am
The Inclusion Academy, established by the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, is an educational program focused on providing students, faculty/staff and health care providers at Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine with cultural knowledge and understanding of various diverse/marginalized communities with the intention to foster diversity and inclusion in all facets of the organization.
The military patient population is often overlooked in traditional primary care facilities; however, less than 50 percent of eligible veterans receive treatment through the Department of Veterans Affairs. This patient population is much more complex and has a higher risk of health complications due to combat, deployment and challenges of reintegration.
With a growing military and veteran patient population at Penn State Health, it is important that providers understand the health impacts of military service and how to address these patients’ needs. This session aims to provide participants with resources when caring for military and veteran patients and strategies on how to better engage with this population.
This session will be held via Zoom.
Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
