Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
Thursday, March 1, 2018 | 11 a.m-12 p.m. CT

Join us for another session in our CME-accredited 2018 Spring Virtual Training webinar series, “Responding to Crises.”

People experiencing homelessness are vulnerable to the adverse health impacts of weather, and these impacts may worsen with climate change. This study was conducted to inform healthy public policy and service planning considerations to better protect the health of people experiencing homelessness during extreme weather. The webinar will provide an overview of the work and how research has informed healthy public policy in this area.
