What is the Cultural Awareness Series?
SFGH’s Community Wellness Program is pleased to present a monthly series focused on enhancing cultural awareness amongst our community of staff, patients, their families, and all San Franciscans. The Community Wellness Program embraces a holistic view of health in which attention to the mind, body, and spirit are considered essential and interconnected in achieving optimal health. In this regard, strengthening an individual’s awareness and appreciation of their own culture and cultural history as well as that of their colleagues, friends, and neighbors serves to support spiritual, mental, and emotional health. Promoting cultural awareness also allows us to demonstrate our commitment to community building for our current and prospective community partners. Finally, promoting cultural awareness has demonstrated to be a successful strategy in attracting diverse constituencies who value and appreciate our commitment to cultural understanding as a vital component to health and wellness.
