ETHNIC/CULTURE COMPETENCE ADVOCACY

HEALTHCARE

WEN can help you and your family reduce the unnecessary stress associated with finding and communicating with your doctor, nurse, nutritionist, etc. This is especially true when dealing with health threatening emergencies. In a world where health practitioners of diverse backgrounds serve others from different backgrounds, it can be equally as challenging for healthcare providers to master as many different cultures as possible while providing or seeking to provide the best healthcare.

That’s why WEN steps in to make this process easy for both you and your health practitioner. WEN provides:
