Food Insecurity and Trauma Informed Approaches to BMI and Diabetes Care While Experiencing Homelessness

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
December 9, 2020 | 12 – 1 p.m. Central

Register for this webinar

Health centers and their affiliates will recognize the necessity of trauma-informed care among individuals experiencing homelessness as it relates to food insecurity, BMI screenings and care. In particular, food insecurity and its effects on individuals experiencing homelessness will be explored to best meet challenges of dietary intake. During the webinar, participants will learn what body mass index (BMI) is, while describing the danger it poses towards public health amongst individuals experiencing homelessness. Participants will also be able to describe the various traumas one experiences while being homeless and how trauma-informed care acts as a bridge to establish rapport and better serve the community. Diabetes management and education will also be addressed to support staff and clients.
