Hmong Wausau Festival

Eastbay Sports Complex, 602 E. Kent St., Wausau, WI

 

 

Hmong Health Summit

August 11-12, 2017, 8:00AM-4:45 AM CST
501 E. Badger Rd., Madison, WI

 

Since the resettlement of the Hmong in America over four decades ago, the Hmong have adapted to mainstream Western society while preserving many of their cultural practices. This acculturation process, however, has proven
challenging. The Hmong continue to face significant health disparities in the treatment of chronic disease, cancer, behavioral/mental health and more.

 

In the history of the Hmong in America, no known formal training has been offered for health providers by Hmong health professionals addressing the unique and specific concepts of Hmong health and healing.
 

The Hmong Health Summit is the first of its kind and will assist participants in gaining knowledge about traditional Hmong health beliefs and practices in an effort to foster cultural competence and promote culturally-responsive
service.
