HCH Clinicians’ Network Steering Committee

The Steering Committee Shapes the Future of the Network

Consisting of 15 Health Care for the Homeless Clinicians’ Network members, the Steering Committee works collaboratively to inform the clinical agenda for the National HCH Council. To accomplish this work, the Steering Committee meets monthly by teleconference and twice a year in person— in Nashville, Tennessee, during October and at the National Health Care for the Homeless Conference (location and month varies by year).
