Dialogue on Race for Nursing

The "Dialogue on Race for Nursing" is a pioneering initiative by the Louisiana Action Coalition (LAC), aimed at advancing health equity across Louisiana. Grounded in the principles of the existing "Dialogue on Race Louisiana, Original Series," this project is designed to bring a profound and necessary conversation about race into the healthcare field.


  • Inclusivity and Compassion: Through a specialized curriculum, the Dialogue on Race for Nursing seeks to provide nurses, doctors, and healthcare leaders with the understanding, empathy, and skills required to transcend racial and ethnic boundaries in healthcare.

  • Real-world Relevance: Adapted from the proven Dialogue on Race Louisiana Original Series, the curriculum ensures content that has been tested and refined through real-world dialogues, making it not only theoretical but also practically applicable.

  • Statewide Impact: The project will engage with healthcare institutions and see its implementation across organizations in Louisiana, bringing a compassionate, inclusive, and high-quality approach to healthcare in the state.
