Amarillo, Texas (PRWEB) April 13, 2015
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control recognizes April as Minority Health Awareness Month. The theme for this year's campaign is: 30 Years of Advancing Health Equity! The Heckler Report: A Force for Ending Health Disparities in America. Praeclarus Press consistently strives to create awareness and support education for healthcare issues related to this topic, and is excited to announce special online education opportunities are now available through the end of the month.
For the entire month of April, please enjoy a complimentary webinar, Depression is Black!, with presenter Jessica Walker. Walker addresses the various ways to cultivate a relationship with African American clients, learning strategies for working with clients and patients who come from another cultural background. Included is history of the African American community, how members specifically deal with stress, and how to incorporate that knowledge into effective treatment.
