The Texas/Oklahoma AIDS Education & Training Center (TX/OK AETC) would like you to participate in its upcoming training entitled, “Black, African American, or Black American: Is there a Difference? – Exploring the role of Cultural Factors on the HIV/AIDS Landscape.“  Though African Americans/Blacks in the United States have been disproportionately impacted by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, there seems to be a lack of understanding of their cultural diversity among clinicians.  This presentation is an attempt to draw attention to the issue of cultural competence and is intended to tailor HIV/AIDS treatment for this population based on their cultural beliefs.  This training is the 3rd webinar in our “Minority AIDS Initiative Series” and will be presented by Jay Ohagi, PhD, MPH.

*CEs are not available. However, Certificates of Attendance are available upon request.

 LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

ü  Correctly describe the cultural diversity of the African American/Black population.

ü  Identify at least three sub-categories of African Americans/Blacks in the United States.

ü  Explain the impact of cultural factors on the health outcome of African Americans/Blacks living with HIV/AIDS.
