Learn about care for special populations in three new webinars in our Her Health, Her Housing: Improving Services for Women Experiencing Homelessness training series. Women experiencing homelessness face marginalization and stigma, and those involved with sex work, confronting racism, and/or identifying as LGBQ face even greater challenges. Providers must be prepared to respond to these clients with compassionate, trauma-informed care underpinned by a knowledge of health disparities and barriers to access.
Make plans to join us for these sessions in March exploring the challenges facing special populations experiencing homelessness and how to address barriers to care.
