If you have questions or need to meet about a research project, feel free to email me or book a Zoom consultation using the buttons below my photo to the left.  Or use the chat box that slides in from the right to ask more general questions.

Margaret Henderson and Ashley Wilson have recent received a Collection Equity and Outreach Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Region 5. Books in this collection reflect health and wellness topics, specifically in underrepresented populations. It includes fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, and poetry representing diverse people, illnesses, and other health related concerns. Please take a look at the collection and come to the Library to check out the books.


What is Cultural Competence?

Cultural competence is the ability to understand, appreciate, and interact with persons from cultures and/ or belief systems other than one's own, based on various factors. Culturally competent health workers and organizations have a positive effect on patient care by delivering services that are respectful of and responsive to the health beliefs, practices and cultural and linguistic needs of diverse patients.
