Since 1994, our key strategy has been both to serve Sponsors’ emergent needs for ethical frameworks and guidance and to make cutting-edge contributions to the field of health care ethics. In Minnesota in the mid 1990s, health care professionals were expressing deep concern that they were failing in their relationships with Hmong patients and families. A MCHCE-led project produced the book, Healing by Heart: Clinical and Ethical Case Stories of Hmong Families and Western Providers. It consists of 15 case stories with commentaries by both Hmong and Western contributors, and includes a model for culturally responsive health care. In 2002, it was awarded the Norman L. and Roselea J. Goldberg Prize for the best project in the area of medicine by Vanderbilt University Press.
