About the conference

On behalf of Dr. Norma Martinez Rogers, the founder of the Cultural Inclusion Institute:

With tremendous thought and consideration, we are postponing the 7th Annual Cultural Inclusion Pre-Conference and Conference scheduled for October 24-26, 2021.  We have received a lot of feedback from the planning committee, speakers, and registrants about their increased commitments to serve in their clinical settings to care for the patients battling COVID-19 and the Delta Variant.  We want to honor their service to the community’s healthcare and ensure the conference's integrity by postponing it until April 5-7, 2022.  

We are very sorry for the inconvenience. This is the safest and most appropriate response due to the current healthcare pandemic.  

We will provide full refunds of registrations starting the week of August 30th.  Please give us a little time to start the process.

If you submitted an abstract and/or were accepted to present an abstract, we will provide information on the process for transitioning those to the April 2022 conference. 

Your patience is appreciated as we make this transition.
