Family Involvement Center has adopted the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (or CLAS) for health and health care organizations. The National CLAS Standards were created to improve the quality and equity of health care services by increasing the cultural competence of organizations that provide them. By eliminating health care disparities, the National Standards will advance health and health care in the United States. To learn more about the 15 National CLAS Standards, as well as their purpose, components and strategies for implementation, click here.
