The 2016 Health Center and Public Housing Regional Symposium was held on November 15-16, 2016, at the Double Tree by Hilton in Chicago, IL. This year’s theme was: Addressing Socioeconomic & Environmental Determinants of Health through Community-Based Interventions. As promised this year’s event was an educational, inspiring, and exciting event! The regional symposium provided an opportunity for health center staff and other health care providers, public housing resident advocates, and community members to learn about the challenges residents of public housing face. The training and workshop sessions highlighted HRSA program requirements as well as health priorities, emerging health topics, innovative outreach strategies and programs to provide quality care to underserved populations.
