Dr. Betty Armstrong-Mensah, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy & Behavioral Sciences at Georgia State University School of Public Health, wrote a book chapter entitled Cultural Competence in Healthcare Delivery Among Immigrant Populations in the US: Identifying and Addressing the Challenges.
The chapter was published in Master of Public Health Competencies: A Case Study Approach by Jones and Bartlett. Spanning five key disciplines – biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy and management; social and behavioral sciences; and environmental and occupation health – the book covers the full breadth of public health.
Each chapter is focused on one or more of the 22 required foundational competencies released by the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH) that all graduates of accredited Master of Public Health (MPH) programs should have met by the end of their studies. The chapters also demonstrate how the competency can be applied in public health practice by providing the background of the public health issue, followed by a case study to learn that competency and understand its application. The case studies are accompanied by discussion questions that facilitate classroom discussion.
Dr. Armstrong-Mensah was recently a Health Scientist and ORISE Fellow with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Center for Global Health and National Center for Environmental Health, respectively. She has extensive experience in global health, water and sanitation, project management, evaluation, and instructional material design. Her research interests include gender issues, maternal/child health, and program evaluation.
