Implicit bias training available to meet LARA – MHA requirements


Revised Public Health Code rules from the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) requiring implicit bias training for all professions licensed or registered under the Public Health Code came into effect in June. Implicit bias training is still available for those who need to meet the requirement.

The Office for Health Equity and Inclusion – Michigan Medicine is hosting Building Toward Belonging: Implicit Bias Training (LARA Compliant), a one-hour live virtual course.

Building Towards Belonging: Implicit Bias training is available for $150 per participant.

The following groups are entitled to a discount of $50 per person:

  • University of Michigan alumni and retirees
  • Non-profit workers
  • K-12 workers
  • Groups of 10+ (must be registered together)

If you fall into one of these categories, email [email protected] and request a promo code for the category you qualify for.

Community group session rates: If your team has 50 participants or more, you can request a virtual session outside of our currently posted schedule. This session would be scheduled at a time that suits your team and requests should be submitted in this form at least 6-8 weeks in advance.

The Michigan Board of Health also offers implicit bias training in two formats, hybrid or live guest lecture, over the next few months.

In a hybrid delivery model, learners will watch an hour-long on-demand video and attend an hour-long webinar to engage in in-depth 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 biases and focused exercises, discussion and evaluation questions.
