The National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (the National CLAS Standards) are intended to advance health equity, improve quality, and help eliminate health care disparities by providing a blueprint for individuals and health and health care organizations to implement culturally and linguistically appropriate services. Adoption of these Standards will help advance better health and health care in the United States.

MACC provides 1 hour, 3 hour or 6 hour full day training sessions on what the CLAS standards are and how they can be implemented. Please contact Simone Crawley at for more information.


Free online webinars are underway on the National Enhanced Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards. All webinars are two hours long. Each will cover a different theme of the CLAS Standards. These webinars are being provided by MACC under an agreement with OhioMHAS.

In 2016, MACC produced a brief webinar introduction to the CLAS Standards. The below webinar is a precursor to the second cohort of regional CLAS trainings presented by MACC.
