The third annual South Asian Community Engagement Forum organized by Heart House Hospice, Bethell House and Punjabi Community Health Services was held on February 7, 2017. The theme of the forum was ‘Caring for the Caregiver’. The day provided a tremendous opportunity for caregivers to expand their skills and knowledge for providing care to the South Asian Community.  Sita Jayaraman,  Director Community Services – Indus presented a session on the topic of inclusive health care provision – emphasizing the need to adopt an approach based on equity and inclusion – highlighting the unique needs of individual clients while providing culturally and linguistically responsive services. The session was well received and concluded with the quote from William Osler “It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.”
