Institute for the Advancement of Multicultural & Minority Medicine

Physician Panels

A New Force in Minority Health

Developing and implementing education and training programs that help physicians improve both health care delivery and their interactions with patients are major IAMMM objectives. One way the Institute works to achieve them is by sponsoring panels that focus on specific issues or trends and increase awareness about health disparities. These panels also help enrich the quality of care physicians provide by teaching them how to become more culturally competent.

In 2004-2005, IAMMM sponsored presentations at several state medical meetings. At the Arkansas State Medical, Dental and Pharmacy Association Meeting, Juanita Archer, MD, gave a presentation entitled “Diabetes and Disparities–What’s Happening in Your Neighborhood.” Robert Williams, MD and Glenda Hodges, Ph.D, JD, M. Div., led a panel entitled “End of Life Care Certification Training for African American Health Professionals” for the Arkansas Medical, Dental, and Pharmaceutical Association; Louisiana Medical Association; and the Georgia State Medical Association. Dr. Rahn Bailey, a psychiatrist, delivered a presentation entitled “Diabetes and Mental Health” at the Old North State Medical Society meeting.
