LUNA was a proud sponsor of Refugee Summit 2016 . . . A Focus on Healthcare held Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at The Summit in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
In partnership with Amani Family Services (formerly Crime Victim Care), Welcoming Ft. Wayne, Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, and Kaleidoscope Diversity Solutions, Inc., local and regional healthcare providers and users were invited to explore issues, solutions, and strategies for effectively managing the physical and mental health in refugee populations.
The event included presentations and discussions about refugee resettlement, language services, cultural sensitivity in healthcare, and dietary issues.
By all accounts, the event was a huge success! The information and ideas shared will continue to expand the capacity of the Ft. Wayne and surrounding communities to welcome and effectively serve refugee populations.
