2009 Recognizing Innovation in Multicultural Health Care Award (NCQA)

2009 Recognizing Innovation in Multicultural Health Care Award - National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)

NCQA is now accepting applications for its 2009 Recognizing Innovation in Multicultural Health Care Award program. This program highlights and recognizes health plans for their exemplary efforts and demonstrated effectiveness in promoting cultural competence and addressing the health care needs of diverse members. Please consider submitting an application or help us spread the word about this opportunity to your health plan contacts.

Award winners will be honored at a dinner event in Washington, DC on October 15, 2009. Awardees will also showcase their initiatives at a poster session and reception before the event. This event will provide a forum for the recognition, dissemination and collaboration of various efforts to address culturally and linguistically appropriate services and disparities-related issues. All are invited to attend.

Applications are available on the NCQA website and are due June 1, 2009. To view past award-winning initiatives and to download previous Innovative Practices Reports, please visit the NCQA website. Please email CLASAwards@ncqa.org with any questions or to RSVP for the event.
