Join us at the 2018 National Health Care for the Homeless Conference & Policy Symposium for a keynote address from Howard Pinderhughes, PhD, social and behavioral scientist and associate professor at the University of California, San Francisco.
Dr. Pinderhughes is a leading researcher in the areas of race relations among youth and adolescent violence prevention and intervention and has been conducting research on these topics in San Francisco Bay Area communities since 1989. His book Race in the Hood: Conflict and Violence Among Urban Youth examines the dynamics of racial violence in New York City. He has been instrumental in working with major cities across the U.S. on development and implementation of comprehensive violence prevention plans. Dr. Pinderhughes’ forthcoming book, Dealing With Danger: How Inner-City Youth Cope with the Violence that Surrounds Them, examines how urban youth in the Bay Area experience various types of violence and the impact of trauma on youth and their communities.
This year’s HCH Conference in Minneapolis, MN, will focus on “Working Together for Community” and is your opportunity to take part in four days of intensive trainings in health care and homelessness, as well as learn and network with colleagues dedicated to the HCH movement.
