Move to the Form Elements in the bottom of the palette to locate the Race/Ethnicity Element. Click and drag to position the Element on the Section.

Use the Edit menu or the Keyboard Shortcut, Command S to save this Section. Be sure to watch the EMR video to set up the Narrative for this Section. There is also a video to learn how to add this new Section to your EMR Template.
