Description:

Living through ongoing public health emergencies (e.g. wildfires, substance use and overdose, evictions and homelessness, Black maternal mortality, reproductive healthcare restrictions, etc.) makes it clear that not only is healthcare access more important than ever, but that the health of our communities as a whole matters more than ever.

FUTURES’ staff continue to train health center staff and DV advocates on our Universal Education Intervention, CUES, and have adapted the intervention to telehealth settings. HCADV Day presents an opportunity to expand the conversation from individual health outcomes to community health outcomes. Community health workers (CHWs) and others from community based organizations (CBOs) are integral to building and maintaining community protective factors, to help with community healing, and to support violence prevention efforts. With health center staff and DV advocates experiencing high rates of burnout throughout this time, there is opportunity form partnerships with other community health services and highlight additional methods to prevent violence and support whole and caring communities.
