Marshallese Cultural Health Forum

The Marshallese Cultural Health Forum (MCHF) serves as a platform to explore and address the unique health challenges faced by the communities from the Republic of Marshall Islands. As you may know, the Marshallese people have a rich cultural heritage that spans centuries, but unfortunately, they also face significant health disparities that require our immediate attention and action.

This event will give the invaluable opportunity to collaborate with like-minded professionals, share their expertise, learn about the latest health information and data, and gain a deeper understanding of the specific health needs of the Marshallese population.

The MCHF will feature engaging keynote speakers and collaborative panel discussions centered around addressing healthcare and disparities within the Marshallese community based on the latest information about the community as seen through a culturally aware lens. This forum will also include the newest in Marshallese Health Data and vital information about cultural approaches to working with the communities.
