This introductory session will engage social service providers and healthcare professionals on how to best support caregivers of African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian-American, Southeast Asian-American, LGBT, and American Indian/Alaska Native identities. Learn new tips for building relationships, programming, and resources for these diverse caregivers and the elders they care for.
