Event Description


PA NEN is excited to announce its 2015 summer workshops! Based on the feedback from members, directors and attendees we have developed a new format for the workshops. This one day, interactive workshop will focus on two different types of communication, Cultural and Technology.

Using a case-study, Janet Schwartz  will describe what cultural competence looks like in our health clinics, and food and nutrition programs. Reconnect with your own cultural food practices and take a deeper look into cultural foods and practices among common immigrant groups. What does it mean to work towards cultural competence as individuals and organizations?

Aimee Bigham  brings a vast knowledge of technology and how to use it to get your clients to become proactive. Aimee will present how smart phones and social networking have changed the way our clients think, react, and communicate. She’ll share several examples of the ways technology has changed the way we approach our work, as well as, how to find and utilize apps that are nutrition and fitness relate.
