Inner City Health Associates (ICHA) is pleased to announce a Free Educational Forum for staff & students.
Please join us on October 21, 2016 from 9am-1pm for ICHA's inaugural Education Forum on Homeless Health.
Objectives of this session include:
- To increase awareness of health-related issues facing homeless or marginally housed individuals and populations;
- To present current “best practice” initiatives in homeless health care;
- To provide medical students, residents and fellows with an opportunity to liaise with ICHA staff and develop an understanding of ICHA’s mission, thereby increasing the visibility of ICHA among medical learners
Drs Gary Bloch, Naheed Dosani, and Kathleen Doukas will be speaking, as well as the nursing team from Covenant House youth shelter. We will also be featuring two speakers with lived homelessness experience, who will discuss their interactions with the healthcare system.
