First event on October 25 to educate about Hispanic health disparities
GREENVILLE, NC: Trillium Health Resources will launch our new SUMMIT Program this fall to educate our communities on how they can take control of their health. Topics will cover health disparities experienced by marginalized populations along with issues affecting certain diagnoses.
The first event will take place on October 25 in Jacksonville. Titled “Herencia Hispana/LatinX: ¡Vamos a Hablar! (Hispanic/LatinX Heritage Let’s Talk!),” it will focus on physical health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, and child preventative measures. We will also serve a delicious lunch from a local Columbian restaurant, celebrating this culture as part of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15).
“Trillium views health equity as one of our most important responsibilities,” shared Luz Terry, Vice President of Enterprise Training & Staff Development. “Through activities like these SUMMIT events, we will educate, empower, and assist our communities with the steps they need to take to improve their health.”
We will schedule events throughout the year and in various locations to meet as many of our providers, members and community stakeholders as possible. The tentative SUMMIT calendar includes events that focus on intellectual/developmental disabilities, substance use and recovery, and more.
Visit our website to learn more and register for the first event. We will post future event registrations on our calendar. Our Health Equity Summary covers the efforts that Trillium has completed dedicated to improving access to health care for everyone from 2012-2022.
