April 2018 SIETAR Meeting
Cross-Cultural Healthcare

Speaker: David Hunt, President and CEO - Critical Measures, LLC

At this month's meeting, we will explore three current issues in cross-cultural health care. Briefly, those issues include: racial and ethnic disparities in patient outcomes and satisfaction; language access for Limited English Proficient (LEP) patients and the emerging issue of global medicine. Our Speaker: David B. Hunt, J.D., President and CEO of Critical Measures. Over 80% of Critical Measures work is in the area of cross-cultural health care. Mr. Hunt is a sought-after national and international speaker on issues of racial and ethnic disparities in health care, the law
of language access and medical disparities that result from globally mobile populations. He has delivered keynote presentations on The New Science of Unconscious Bias for the AMA and the AHA and The Law of Language Access for the American Bar Association.
Together with physician partners from Harvard and the University of Minnesota Medical School, David has created some of the nation's first e-learning programs on cross-cultural medicine. In 2015, the American Hospital Association selected Critical Measures as the national consultant for their #123forEquity Campaign – a national effort designed to reduce racial and ethnic disparities in health care. Critical Measures has pioneered an evidence-based approach to improving care for cross-cultural patient populations and will share some of the results of their research with SIETAR-MN members at this month’s event.
