Upcoming Webinar: Supportive Transition Care for Foster and Former Foster Youth
Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2023, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST We invite you to join the School-Based Health Alliance (SBHA) in partnership with the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership (NCMLP) for a one-hour webinar focused on better understanding and addressing the unique health and health-related social needs of foster youth as they transition to adulthood, developed in consultation with the National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center (Education Center). The webinar will aim to increase the audience’s knowledge of and/or capacity to address the following: the specific health needs and disparities faced by current and former foster youth, with attention placed on youth identifying as LGBTQIA+; how school-based health centers (SBHC) serve as critical access points for healthcare and social services; and promising practices for integrating supportive transition care services that improve health and social outcomes for foster and former foster youth.
