About the Event
Caribbean Health Summit
This is a Biennial event in collaboration with hospitals, community based organization and other entities to address health issues in the Caribbean Community in Brooklyn.
Health care statistics show that Caribbean populations living in Brooklyn suffer disproportionately from a variety of health care concerns, including Hepatitis C, Mental health Diabetes, Maternal and Child Health issues. Health care literature shows that medical providers have not always been trained to provide comprehensive, culturally competent care to their Caribbean patients, so that these health disparities may be reduced. This Health Care Summit will address these practice gaps for medical practitioners who provide care to Caribbean populations. The conference will focus on culturally appropriate care for the Caribbean and other minority patients and the impact on the individual and family.
