Do you know where the ketchup goes? Are you an individualist with polychronic time orientation and an indirect communication style? If these questions sound like another language and you CAN NOT answer them you SHOULD attend PART 1 of this 2 PART series. 

Part II: "Where Does the Medicine Go?"
This follow-up training will further explore the concepts developed in Part I: time orientation, group orientation, and communications styles. This session will also focus specifically on accessing medical care, with an activity focused on medication use that incorporates traditional medicines found in ethic markets in Utica.

The training will specifically cover:
1. Challenges when Accessing Care
2. Awareness for home care – bedding, bathroom, diet etc.
3. Traditional medicines or practices of migrant communities
4. Cultural Concepts: Personal Care Preferences, Religious Considerations, Pain Management etc.

*If you have not attended training from The Center before we highly recommend attending both Part 1 and Part 2 of this series. However, attendance at Part 1 is not required in order to sign-up for Part 2. If you only sign-up for Part 2 and are not familiar with the concepts please be aware that the presenter will only do a brief overview of concepts and go right into content.
