Presentation: Homelessness and Inclusion Health

When: July 20 at 1:00 p.m. MT/ 2:00 p.m. CT

The interactions between homelessness and health are complex. Having a greater understanding of these interactions, of complex trauma, historical trauma including racism, and the negative effects of social exclusion on health is essential for librarians and others in supportive roles. Evidence-based interventions like inclusion health, health through housing, and health literacy supportive education, help to improve the health and life trajectories of people experiencing homelessness. Brief case studies and discussion of the role of librarians will be included in this presentation.

The PNC-MLA Health Equity and Diversity Speaker Series is a collaboration between NNLM Region 5 and Pacific Northwest Chapter/Medical Library Association (PNC-MLA) through the efforts of its Diversity Committee.

Presenter: Josephine Ensign is a Professor at the University of Washington in Seattle. She teaches public health, health policy, and health humanities. She has been a nurse for forty years and has lived the experience of homelessness as a young adult. Her scholarship and practice as a nurse practitioner focus on trauma-informed care and health inequities for people marginalized by poverty and homelessness. She has also authored books, essays, and articles on the topic of homelessness.

The webinar is free but registration is required. Unable to attend the live session? It will be recorded and posted on the NNLM YouTube channel.
