Healthy Perspectives is funded in part by a grant from Healthcare Georgia Foundation. Created in 1999 as an independent, private foundation, the Foundation’s mission is to advance the health of all Georgians and to expand access to affordable, quality healthcare for under-served individuals and communities.
The educational mission of Augusta University (Augusta University) is focused on improving the quality of life for individuals and communities through improving health care. Our commitment to educational innovation and reducing barriers to quality health care services sparked the development of Healthy Perspectives (HP), an online, high-tech, cultural competency curriculum for all incoming health care students enrolled in our Colleges of Allied Health Sciences, Dental Medicine, Graduate Studies, Nursing, and Medical College of Georgia. All students have to pass the content quizzes and exercises to exit the graduation requirement because, quite simply, failing cultural competency is not an option for our future healthcare providers
