Language Instruction and Dedicated Education of Residents for the Latinx Community (LIDERES-LC)
We are proud to announce that Community Health of Central Washington recently applied for and was awarded funding under the HRSA Primary Care Training and Enhancement – Language and Disability Access grant to support our training of CWFM residents in a curriculum that is meant to improve their ability to serve our rural Latinx community of Central Washington. Through this additional funding, we are developing a residency track program (LIDERES-LC) available to second- and third-year residents which will provide a focused residency curriculum that encompasses training on social determinants of health specific to the Latinx community, community engagement, service-based learning, Spanish language fluency development, and clinical rotations focused on serving Latinx patients of limited English proficiency. We look forward to having this program up and running for the academic year of 2024-25. For more details and updates please visit the following link!
