• LARA Rules Requiring Implicit Bias Training Take Effect June 1

    The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) revised Public Health Code requiring implicit bias training for all professions licensed or registered under the Public Health Code, except for Veterinary Medicine, .

    To complete this requirement, the Michigan Health Council is pleased to offer implicit bias training for health care professionals. Each training will include an overview of how to recognize implicit bias, an in-depth discussion, and exercises on the following six topics:

    • Race
    • Sex/Gender
    • Socioeconomic Status
    • Mental Health
    • Body Habitus
    • Neurodiversity

    The training is available in two formats, hybrid or live guest lecture.
    In a hybrid delivery model, learners will watch a one-hour video on demand and attend a one-hour webinar to engage in a robust discussion and group exercises with the instructor and other learners. This training is available for $50 per person. Register here.


    With a guest presentation, organizations can offer the training to their staff on-site at their convenience. The presentation will include an introduction to implicit bias and targeted exercises, discussion, and evaluation questions.
