Coronavirus and the Health Care for the Homeless Community


March 20, 2020 | 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM EDT



The coronavirus outbreak is evolving rapidly, raising many concerns about the impact on people experiencing homelessness. As health care providers who work at the intersection of health and the homeless services system, the Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) community is in a unique position to care for an especially vulnerable population during an infectious disease outbreak.

At this 90-minute webinar participants will hear from HUD and CDC staff as well as HCH clinical and administrative leaders who will discuss the current status of the outbreak, the available guidance that is specific to homeless service venues, the preparations that homeless health care providers are making, and the myriad outstanding issues being identified.

Participants do not need to register in advance. To join the session, simply access the session login page at the link below.
