CCA Health Michigan Director of Clinical Operations Linda Perkins wrote an op-ed for the Arab American News discussing how culturally competent care is important to achieving better health outcomes for minority groups in Michigan and beyond.

“As a nurse for CCA Health Michigan, and as an active member of my community and church, I’ve seen first-hand how cultural differences and societal barriers impact the health of individuals with significant needs, especially members of minority groups,” she said. “In my experience, individuals who mistrust the healthcare system struggle to embrace their care plans. They may see a medical expert’s guidance as one option of many, which requires discussion with family, friends or religious leaders.”
