3 Welcome Message from the Regional Administrator Health Resource and Service Administration (HRSA) On behalf of HRSA Office of Regional Operations Seattle Region X we welcome you to the Northwest Regional Conference on African Immigrant Health. This Conference was developed with you in mind. The planning committee was selected among your leading clinical, regional and national subject matter experts with you in mind. Throughout the development of the Conference we had one charge and that was to ensure that each participant will be equipped to build or strengthen the public health access of the African immigrant population and to improve the cultural competence of health infrastructure in delivering quality health and human services to the African immigrant population. It is our hope that this action oriented 2-day conference will empower you to explore and/or adopt new resources and to form new partnerships that will advance culturally competent public health initiatives. Again, thank you for partnering with HRSA as we endeavor to enhance the role of public-private partnerships to improve health equity in underserved communities through on-the ground outreach, education, technical assistance and partnering with local, state and federal organizations. Warm Regards, Sharon Turner Regional Administrator HRSA Office of Regional Operations-Region X 3

4 Welcome Message from the Regional Health Administrator Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) Welcome, Conference Attendees, to the beautiful Pacific Northwest! I am excited that we are hosting Region X s first regional conference on African immigrant health. The African immigrant population in the U.S. is steadily growing, and we must continue our best efforts to address their health needs and challenges. I can think of no better way to support this population than by coming together to share your best practices and the work that you are doing in your respective communities. I want to thank all attendees and presenters for the dedication you bring to your work in addressing the health needs of the African immigrant population in the United States. We know that health data on African immigrants are sparse, which can prevent culturally appropriate programs and services from being developed and provided. I hope that this two-day conference will help to form new partnerships, foster increased communication, and provide a forum for community involvement to address such gaps. We in public health increasingly recognize the critical roles that social, environmental, and economic factors play in determining our health and well-being. I hope that this conference encourages us all to think broadly about how to engage various elements of our society (e.g., education, transportation, and housing) in a common effort to promote community health. Through new conversations with diverse partners, we may find new ways to contribute to health and well-being. We must recognize how culture, religion, neighborhood, and even our immigration status can impact how healthy we can be. We hope that you leave this conference empowered and with the resources you need to better serve the African immigrant population in the United States. Sincerely, Patrick O Carroll, MD, MPH Rear Admiral, Assistant Surgeon General Regional Health Administrator US Department of Health and Human Services, Region X 4
