Health Education Information in Various Languages

Kansas is becoming a more diverse with each new group of immigrants and refugees settling in the state. It is important to provide meaningful health services that are linguistically appropriate and culturally competent. In order to support providers in serving to immigrant populations the following sources of cultural beliefs, medical issues and health education information may be helpful:


The TrainingFinder Real-time Affiliate Integrated Network, or TRAIN, is the nation’s premier learning resource for professionals who protect the public’s health. TRAIN is comprised of the national site and participating TRAIN affiliate sites. Affiliate sites are managed by many state public health agencies, academic partners, and others. As TRAIN grows, it serves a larger portion of the U.S. public health workforce.

Because all TRAIN sites are connected, TRAIN users can access information about state, local, national, or international training available to them through any participating TRAIN site.


TRAIN allows learners to:

  • Search or browse the nationwide database for on-site or distance learning courses
  • Sign up for e-mails about new courses
  • Create a personal learning record of competency-based training
  • Provide and view feedback about courses listed on the site
  • Register online for many courses
  • Earn CEUs (often at no cost)

Course Providers

TRAIN allows course providers to:

  • Efficiently publicize courses to thousands of TRAIN users through multiple websites – enter course information once (not dozens of times) and it is automatically visible to all participating TRAIN sites
  • Manage online registration and student rosters
  • Collect feedback from learners online
  • Post course materials and discussion topics
