“Reel Talk” Promotes Diversity & Inclusion within the Hospital System

Reel Talk, a film series in its second year, is sponsored by SLCH’s Diversity and Inclusion department to increase knowledge of cultural competencies within the hospital system in order to better serve patients, families and employees. Presented quarterly, Reel Talk opens with a movie that provides a framework for a discussion on issues of diversity and inclusion. 

The next screening is The Color of Medicine: the Story of Home G. Phillips Hospital, that relives a moment in St. Louis history with trailblazers, Dr. Mary A.T. Tillman, pediatrician, Dr. Garey Watkins, ophthalmologist and Richard W. White, a registered nurse, who will lead a discussion on issues touched on in the documentary.

We hope you will join us for our next Reel Talk. It is free to attend for internal and external guests (parking passes are available for external guests who park in the SLCH garage. Popcorn and snacks are served. To help us with a head count, RSVP to

Inclusion Institute for Healthcare 

In the IIH, we explore how the groups we belong to shape our experiences, how we see the world, and how this can impact our work with and care for others. For instance, when working with people from different groups, many people find it difficult to communicate effectively, which can contribute to the quality of care provided. Through a proactive approach, participants develop skills to communicate effectively, while addressing health disparities and enhancing cultural sensitivity.

The IIH includes a three day retreat followed up with two days where we develop plans for establishing more inclusive policies, procedures, and cultures in healthcare and our communities. The three day retreat is Sept 26, 27, and 28 (room and board are included at the Stoney Creek Hotel). And the two follow up days are on Nov. 14 and 15 also to be held in in Columbia (location to be announced0. This program normally costs $3,500 for all five days but due to generous funding from the Missouri Foundation for Health we are able to offer it for only $100. We hope you or your colleagues are able to take advantage of this exceptional discount. Please pass this on to anyone else you think would be interested.
