Request for Presentations
Submission Deadline: May 15, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. PST

Alameda County Behavioral Health (ACBH) cordially invites you to submit a proposal to present at the 2020 California Health Equity Summit: Healing Communities Beyond 2020: Our Health, Our Culture, Our Climate.  #Elevating Voices, scheduled for October 19-20, 2020. This cultural event is sponsored by Alameda County Behavioral Health (ACBH) and will be held in Oakland, California.

This year—and a new decade—we’ve decided to retire the title Cultural Competence Summit and introduce a more inclusive summit title to now be called—California Health Equity Summit. While the new title is looking through the lens of Health Equity, the focus is still on behavioral health. The 2020 California Health Equity Summit is accepting submissions for presentations and/or workshops that highlight projects, programs, methods, activities, and/or interventions that use various healing, wellness and recovery practices, and with a continued focus on behavioral health. There is an emphasis on cultural healing practices as well as traditional medicine that are intended to reach California’s diverse populations. The 2020 Summit will offer an opportunity to engage and deliver a range of cultural healing practices through innovative workshops and presentations to promote learning and to advance cultural humility, social justice, and equity throughout organizations and systems to effectively meet the diverse needs of consumers, individuals, families, and communities.
