This interactive program will review and challenge historical realities, as well as emerging trends in addressing health needs of people with IDD in an intentionally culturally competent approach. A social determinants of health context will be used to define cultural competence; a review of emerging models as examples to delivering improved health status provided; and models of care will be discussed.
