Vanderbilt University School of Nursing (VUSN) and Vanderbilt University Diabetes Center (VUDC) are sponsoring a conference for health care providers titled “Community Based Disease Management Models for Culturally Diverse, Refugee, and Immigrant Populations” on Dec. 4-5 at the Marriott Vanderbilt Hotel.

The purpose of the conference is to examine selected community based chronic disease management models; identify strategies to assess the needs of culturally diverse, refugee and immigrant populations; describe barrier and facilitators to providing primary care services to culturally diverse refugees and immigrant populations; and develop strategies to meet the needs of culturally diverse, refugee, immigrant populations with diabetes.

The conference will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. There is no fee for the conference as funding is provided through a grant received from Health Resource Service Administration, Division of Nursing. Lunch and continuing education units will also be provided.
