How One Community's Partnerships are Transforming Housing and Health Care for the Homeless

The University of Vermont Medical Center's Journey to Establishing Sustainable, Community-Based Relationships

About the Webconference

Population health leaders are increasingly investing energy and resources into addressing the social determinants of health. And for good reason: Non-clinical risk factors can have a greater effect on overall health than the quality of clinical care provided. Left unaddressed, these risk factors often result in costly but avoidable hospitalizations. Despite widespread interest in meeting patients’ non-clinical needs, providers often cite lack of partnership development as a major barrier to addressing social determinants of health.

This webconference explores the University of Vermont Medical Center's journey of collaboration across multiple, community-based organizations to address the costly health care and housing needs of the homeless. You’ll hear directly from multiple partnership stakeholders, including live Q&A with UVM Health Network's Chief Population Health and Quality Officer, Dr. Stephen Leffler.

Join us to explore how your organization can forge sustainable community partnerships to address social determinants of health.

Things You’ll Learn:

  • Strategies for developing and sustaining community partnerships
  • Shared lessons learned across involved partners
  • Real-time answers to questions you and your colleagues have about community partnerships from those who’ve done it well
