Building Unifying Systems of Care Addressing Comorbidities in Women and Girls
Date and Time– December 17, 2021, 05:30 PM EST
Event hosted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
This virtual workshop will address the gaps and opportunities for advancing community adoption and implementation of gender-relevant, evidence-based mental health, substance use, cardiopulmonary, and metabolic disease prevention and treatment interventions for women from high-risk and marginalized communities across the lifespan. Addressing social determinants of health and building infrastructure to ensure sustainability of innovations will be important cross-cutting themes.
The workshop will bring together experts—including researchers, clinicians, and community and Federal partners—to:
- Present the current state of research and critical gaps that need to be addressed in order to accelerate adoption of care models that integrate clinical and population health within well-coordinated, data-driven systems of care; and
- Examine how an integrated set of evidence-based practices delivered across the entire continuum of health care services (i.e., prevention services, primary care, specialty health care, behavioral health care, and health maintenance) in community-based settings can improve health outcomes in women and girls.
