In 2010 The Radherb organizers created a training focused on HEALTH JUSTICE.
The goals of the training are to:
*Encourage a dialogue about Community Health Care and explore issues of Oppression and Accessibility with students, teachers, community organizers and practitioners of herbalism/ holisticl health.
*Focus on Cultural Competency, which is defined simply as the ability to understand, communicate with, and provide effective and appropriate care to people with diverse values, experiences, and backgrounds.
*Create a base of Radherb Educators who can begin to teach and inspire health care providers, clinics, schools, teachers and students throughout the Northeast.
*Create leaders in the field of Health Justice who will then use their skills to collaborate with healthcare providers, clinics, schools, teachers and students throughout the Northeast.
The focus is on the following topics:
Classism within Healthcare
Organizing Accessible Healthcare
Within each subject we explore: History, Definitions and Terminology of each subject; Health Related Topics, Herbal Remedies (if applicable); Resources and more!
