Dr. Islas will discuss with the learners different clinical scenarios that are steeped in cultural issues in order to elucidate the need for and the use of clinical "tools" that can be used to help clinicians in different cultural scenarios. He will use his own Mexican American background and his history of working along the US / Mexico border as a way to teach cultural humility.
