HERS - Aging and the Homelessness Community

November 19, 2015

On November 19, 2015, the National Center on Homelessness among Veterans (NCHAV) hosted a virtual research symposium, the second of the HERS Roundtable Series, to discuss the impact of aging on the homeless community and the special needs associated with this cohort and the prospective impact on health and social services for the VA and its community partners. Experts in homelessness and aging Veterans were brought together to present research findings and service delivery opportunities. A round table discussion with private and federal service providers, policy makers and advocates followed and was moderated by Dr. Tom O'Toole, NCHAV Director. To view the presentations for this Roundtable Series, please see the corresponding list of presenters and panelists below. Additionally, there are links to the archived webinar presentations with audio from the initial roundtable and the follow-up presentation provided below, along with the implications for the field.
