Cultural Competency is tomorrow's learning Thursday seminar

Tomorrow is the Learning Thursdays seminar, "Cultural Competency," scheduled for July 10, 2008 from 10 to 11:30 AM.

Learning Thursdays are free web-based trainings that can be accessed via the internet. They are "live" presentations that enable participant interaction, to include, a question and answer format, and we have provided a hyperlink that will take you to the Learning Thursdays web page. http://www.oasas. state.ny. us/LT/index. cfm

In addition, participants can receive 1.5 hours of CEU credit that they could use for credentialing or re-credentialing. Please note that to participate in any of the presentations you would need to register at the Learning Thursdays' website.

In conclusion, it is our expectation that the July 10th seminar would provide you with viable information regarding the importance of culturally competent services and effectively working with diverse populations, as well as, an impetus for seeking more training in cultural competency.

If any of GCASA's staff take this, please let me know so I can find out how you liked it.
