Community Dialogue Policies

Welcome to Refugee Health Technical Assistance Center (RHTAC) Community Dialogue! We hope Community Dialogue provides a forum for refugee-serving individuals and organizations to share resources and discuss current topics, emergent issues, challenges, service models, case studies, and promising approaches in refugee health and mental health.

Comment Policy
RHTAC will review all comments before posting them on Community Dialogue. We expect that participants will treat each other with respect. We will not post comments that contain vulgar language, unfounded claims or accusations, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups. Off-topic comments will not be posted to the current Community Dialogue but may be used for future Community Dialogue discussions. RHTAC reserves the right to edit a comment for clarity and conciseness before posting, to not post a comment if it believes the comment is inappropriate, and to remove a comment at any time.

We recognize that the Web is a 24/7 medium, and comments are welcome at any time. We will review comments and post them from 9:00 a.m.—5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. We will moderate and post comments submitted after hours, on weekends, or on holidays as early as possible the next business day.

Any comments submitted to RHTAC Community Dialogue enter the public domain and can be viewed by others. Participants should ensure their comments contain no personal identifying or private medical information about a third party.

Questions and comments submitted during RHTAC webinars may be edited and posted on Community Dialogue with a general attribution such as “from webinar participant.”

Participants should not include their phone number or email address in the body of comments unless they would like to be contacted by others. Email addresses submitted by participants in the Leave A Comment email field will not be published on Community Dialogue and will not be shared with outside parties without permission.
