Your Unwavering Commitment to Excellence

Earn free CE at UW Continuing Nursing Education.

Every individual has the right to attain a high level of health. However, policies that seek to promote health equity may not always capture the realities of what providers and key stakeholders experience or issues they seek to resolve. 

Dr. Kenya Beard delivers a powerful discourse that allows providers and key stakeholders to reflect on health equity challenges and share critical approaches to the advancement of health equity. Collectively, we can make a difference!

The lecture was recorded October 2016 by Continuing Nursing Education at the 39th Annual Pacific Northwest Advanced Practice in Primary and Acute Care Conference in Seattle, WA. Teaching methods include video, audio and downloadable handouts.
