Begin each presentation with the "culture of context" (sho is the person), not "a 38 y/o black woman" but a 38 y/o woman from Jamaica whose PCP is Dr. Jones and who is a baker and lives with her 3 children whom she raises on her own.
Incorporate visiting experts (librarian, pharmacist, etc.) directly into the discussion. Use their expertise to set up permanent resources (e.g., web-based favorites).
Spend time addressing behavioral issues for every case presentation.
Spend time addressing population and community health (prevalence in our community; community resources).
