  • Culturally Competent Health Care
    Health disparities in this country continue to stain the supposed health equality intentions that have been advocated for decades. Why do the less fortunate – financially and educationally – continue to see skyrocketing rates of disease, suffering, and death? Sometimes the system that means well simply doesn't get it.

    In this provocative keynote speech, doctor, speaker and television personality Dr. Ian Smith investigates the healthcare divide, offering causes and direction toward equal healthcare for the future.
