Kent County Events

Kent County is offering workshops to help engage its workforce and the community in learning through dialogue about improving community health by addressing:

  • Cultural identity and multicultural self-awareness
  • Perspectives on oppression and privilege
  • The historical role that public health has played in promoting social change, and
  • How all of these things affect our efforts to improve the health of our community.

Enrollment is free and open to anyone. Only a limited number of spots are available.
