Changing the Narrative About Homelessness Webinar
April 30, 2019 –
Homelessness is a very visible health issue that provokes strong public sentiment. The key to change could be harnessing that public passion in new ways. In the April session of Hot Topics in Practice, Hilary Godwin, PhD, Dean of the University of Washington School of Public Health, discusses how we can change the narrative about homelessness by addressing the psychological barriers it summons and lead with bold interventions.
In this one-hour webinar, Godwin will use a population health framework to consider the root causes of homelessness and review ways to strengthen more tertiary, secondary, and especially primary prevention efforts like a strong social safety net. She will review existing best practices and evidence-based interventions from the Pacific Northwest and other regions, and explore leadership roles a School of Public Health can play in this area.
Register today to consider what it takes to shift to a prevention approach to homelessness.
