Dr. Josette French, Family Medicine, and Bridie Johnson will be speaking about health challenges in the Native American/ American Indian community here at Wayne State University. This will be informational for pre-med and pre-health students at WSU who need to learn about culturally responsive care for all of their future patients, from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures. This informational seminar will inform students about current risks and problems that American Indians face today in healthcare and provide an explanation for students on how to treat patients and understand their cultural needs based on their different backgrounds. This seminar will begin with an introduction of the speakers, followed by their presentation, finishing with any questions the audience may have. It is important for pre-health students to learn about these issues now, so that they can better understand their patients in their careers later in life.
