Clinical care for women without homes will come into focus in our new virtual training, Her Health, Her Housing: Improving Services for Women Experiencing Homelessness. Unstably housed women face numerous barriers to accessing prenatal and preventive health services, and it is critical that providers respond to their needs with trauma-informed, quality care.
Please make plans to join us for three webinars in March exploring best practices in care, including:
