“Addressing Health Disparities through Civil Rights Compliance and Enforcement”

Have you ever wanted to learn more about civil rights obligations and compliance and did not know where to go or whom to ask?  OCR and OEOCRDM have a great opportunity for you on Wednesday, September 19 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., eastern daylight savings time (EDT). You will hear from HHS civil rights and policy experts.  This civil rights training will be available in both English and Spanish.

What is in this webcast for you?
 The webcast will provide examples of:
·         How non-compliance can contribute to health disparities and disparities in quality care;
·         Opportunities to ensure HHS-funded programs are in compliance with civil rights laws;
·         How HHS OCR enforces compliance in your neighborhood. 
A panel of experts from OCR and ASFR will answer questions on:
·         Your compliance obligations arising from receipt of Federal financial assistance.
·         Where an individual can go to file discrimination complaints or receive technical assistance.
At the end of the webcast, we trust that:
·         You will understand your roles and responsibilities in ensuring HHS-funded programs comply with civil rights laws.
