10am – Housing and Health Convening (South Seattle)
May 16, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Mercy Housing NW is eager to share strategies for health and wellness engagement informed by our experience as the lead organization for the King County Housing-Health Partnership. The agenda includes a panel discussion with a diverse group of Community Health Workers (CHWs) representing Mercy Housing Northwest, Neighborcare Health, Global to Local, and the YWCA. These CHWs are working with low-income residents of South King County and Seattle and most of them are based in public and affordable housing communities.
From 12-1pm there will be a lunchtime keynote by Cuc Vu, Director of the City of Seattle’s Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs. Ms. Vu will be speaking on the challenges refugees and new immigrants may be facing in the current political climate and how affordable housing organizations can support these communities.
Lunch is provided, covered by $10 registration fee. Register here.
