Health Care Training
The MILLA Project is focused on bringing the latest scientific and medical findings, technologies and research from “bedside to practice.” Our main goal is bridging health and health care disparities for minorities and the underserved within the area of physiological and mental health.
Creative and interactive training forums include workshops, long-term culture and diversity coaching, and modality specific conferences.

Popular Training Programs Include:
- Provider oriented training on trauma-specific mental and physical responsive health care for survivors of torture, war crimes and/or human trafficking.
- Provider/Patient minority health education and the reduction in readmission rates.
- Modality-specific cultural and diversity competence training. Common topics discussed are: socio-economic benefits of an innovative multi-ethnic/cultural service delivery model; mastering cultural sensitivity utilizing macro and micro level lenses; identify, implement and evaluate effective linguistic competence models with low initial investment rates; design and develop minority health education campaigns that promote patient adherence to treatment plans, follow-up appointment rates, and improving health outcomes; identify health disparities, sustainable solutions, and practical tools.
Our goals and objectives are to assist you with the adaptation and implementation of best practices of culture/ethnic patient-specific care, which positions your staff and healthcare providers to deliver a new level of quality care. Moving away from an ethnocentric healthcare model, towards an xenocentric model, reduces readmission rates, improves patient safety and results in economic benefits. Learn how cultural/ethnic competency in healthcare can give you the competitive advantage. All training programs are CME eligible.
