About This Event

Join Children's Hospital Association and American Academy of Pediatrics for "Housing and Health — Engaging the Pediatric Community," a two-part webinar series exploring ways that children’s hospitals and pediatric practices can support the relationship between secure and healthy housing and improved health status of children and families.

In the first webinar, "From Housing Security to Healthy Housing — Engaging Pediatric Providers," we’ll explore the connection between housing security and health outcomes including the health risks associated with homelessness. Additionally, we’ll focus on the role of medical legal partnerships in supporting families with housing concerns related to both housing security and the quality of housing. The session will introduce concepts, highlight resources for screening and share ways to advocate.

View the second webinar in the series, "Innovative Approaches to Address Housing Needs: What Pediatricians and Hospital Systems Can Do."
