    New Mexico Cultural Competence Information and Education Center

    The New Mexico Department of Health, Division of Policy and Performance, Office of Health Equity is pleased to launch their first online courses, CLAS I: Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards and CLAS II: Critical Concepts in Cultural Competence. Links to the courses are both below and on the left.

    The CLAS Standards course prepares health care professionals and health care agencies to:

    • Address the cultural and linguistic barriers to health care delivery
    • Increase access to health care for limited English-proficient patients/clients
    • Understand health risk factors and successful prevention/intervention strategies
    • Provide implementation strategies to comply with the CLAS Standards

    The CLAS II course introduces you in greater depth to the cultural considerations in health care.

    The Education Center is funded by a grant from the National Office of Minority Health. Through the Education Center, the Office of Health Equity will provide resources that equip health care providers to provide the best care possible to their diverse population of patients and clients.

    For information on other health disparity activities or bilingual medical/behavioral health terminology training in Spanish and Navajo contact Dawn M. Hunter, 505-476-3656 (office) or
