About the Cultural Institute of Health & Education
The mission of the Cultural Institute of Health and Education (CIHE) is to empower and prepare health professionals who will provide high quality, knowledge, caring and compassionate care for residents, in-patient, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, private homes, outpatient facilities and hospitals. It is our mission to prepare health education to individuals who are open minded, professional and dedicated to providing high quality care to all residents, clients and patients that they may serve.
How We Got Started
When we did encounter many of these individuals, we often wondered what made the difference between those who appeared professional and passionate as opposed to those who had poor professional conduct. We also questioned how a supportive mentor would change their behaviors and outlook on professional development and continuing education.
Another significant trend that we considered is the disproportionate number of people of color providing care to others from the same ethnic background. Understanding that when it comes to health issues, having someone from the same culture helps with gaining information that aids in addressing health interventions and health promotions.
