Hands Up

Diversity & Inclusion

These trainings include topics such as cultural competence, cultural humility, implicit bias, debiasing techniques, and cross-cultural communication.

Health Promotion

Most adults in the United States struggle with understanding and acting on basic health information. Erie Niagara AHEC training sessions focus on improving health literacy, expanding use of the teach-back method, and addressing social determinants of health.

Providers and Teens Communicating for Health

The Providers and Teens Communicating for Health (PATCH) program strives to bring youth voices into important adolescent health conversations while providing the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to be drivers of change in their community. THEY are the ones who can provide authentic insight into the concerns, ideas, and preferences of their generation. Our Teen Educators facilitate workshops for fellow teens and healthcare providers in pursuit of this goal.
