Summary:

The Romani population in the United States is estimated at 200,000 to 1 million, with most Roma living in larger cities, including Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Seattle, Atlanta and Boston. Discrepancies in population estimates are due to the fact that Roma rarely participate in U.S. Census surveys and often identify themselves as being of Mexican, Southern European or Native American origin. Roma have experienced discrimination and stereotyping for many generations. The goal of this module is to provide healthcare professionals with information about the Romani (Gypsy) culture so that they in turn can provide culturally congruent care to Romani patients and their families.

This course opened my eyes to a population that I have never encountered in 40 years of OT practice. I would have sadly missed learning about this group had it not been part of the course bundle. Thank you for including it.
