Patients-to-Policy Housing Learning Collaborative (Jan – Feb 2021)

This Learning Collaborative Series is now over. There are no upcoming sessions.

About this Learning Collaborative

Housing hardships are at a record high during the COVID-19 pandemic, with people experiencing loss of income, threat of eviction, delayed rent or mortgage payments, and utility cut-offs at increased rates, all of which have enormous health consequences for individuals and communities. We’re hosting a four-part learning collaborative to explore the ways medical-legal partnerships can leverage the patient-centered legal services to implement clinic- and policy-level solutions to address the housing crisis.

Participants will receive information through a blend of brief didactic presentations followed by peer-to-peer learning. This learning collaborative is specifically for health centers and their legal partners, but individuals from other health systems that collaborate with health centers are welcome to attend. We encourage participants to attend all four sessions live, but welcome on-demand attendance using our recordings and engagement through our Slack learning community.
