We live in a melting pot of cultures. One of the places that may be most obvious is the hospital. It’s incredibly important to understand, at least in brief, our patients’ cultures and backgrounds to ensure the therapy options we pursue are in line with their beliefs.

The app is produced by Jeremy Morse, an OR nurse from Dallas, TX. The content of this app was found using hundreds of personal interviews.
