Owensboro Community & Technical College is hosting a free professional development session geared toward healthcare providers from 1-4 p.m. on Friday, with both in-person and virtual attendance possible. The presentation will cover “the cultural iceberg, equity-minded care and cultural development, social determinants of educational attainment, the illness and clinical encounter, and prescription remedy and follow-up.”

Dr. Jitana Benton-Lee will present “Cultured Remedy: The Intercultural Development of Healthcare Providers.”

The event will be held in the Chandler Conference Center (ATC107), located in the Advanced Technology Center (4800 New Hartford Road).

Participants are asked to register prior to the event. There is limited seating available in person. The remote attendees will be sent a link.

The event is held in conjunction with the KNA Green River Chapter and is eligible for 3.2 CEU hours through KBN. (KBN#1-0001-12021-90)

She holds a Doctoral in Nursing Practice degree from NKU, a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Phoenix, a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, a Master of Business Administration degree from Sullivan University and a Bachelor of Science degree from NKU.
