The Nova Scotia Department of Health's Diversity Committee presented innovative learning opportunities featuring Chicago based Project Brotherhood in March 2010. Presentations to youth, health stakeholders, public servants, communities and a unique tele-health session for the health system were included in this initiative.
Featured on CNN's "Black in America", Project Brotherhood is a holistic, primary health care model designed using cultural and gender specific approaches.
The objectives of the Department of Health's Diversity Committee in hosting these special presentations included having representatives from the Project Brotherhood Team share the Project story, share their lessons learned, inform best practice, build systemic cultural competence and inspire representation of those most under-represented in the health professions.
The Project Brotherhood Team shared its lessons learned and offered insight on planning and programming that meets the needs of historically, marginalized populations.
