Supporting the Unique Health Needs of Children in Foster Care

A one-day learning summit for primary care providers and allied health professionals

About the event:

Children in foster care have special health care needs—some are easy to see, but many are not. How can you identify and address these medical issues, all while navigating complex agencies and effectively engaging an interdisciplinary team?

Explore this topic and much more at our dynamic summit featuring expert speakers, panelists with lived experience, and breakout sessions, plus keynote speaker Dane M. Borg, PsyD.

You’ll also hear key insights from local providers who participated in the Foster Care Advanced Primary Care Learning Collaborative, a cross-system initiative committed to reducing disparities and improving health outcomes. Join us to connect with colleagues and share strategies for meeting the unique needs of children in foster care

Topics include:

  • Biopsychosocial and neurodevelopmental impacts of early life trauma and adversity
  • Wide-ranging effects of foster care placement and its impact on healthcare needs and treatment
  • Practice strategies for identification, comprehensive assessment, and continuity of medical care
  • Effective inter-professional communication and teamwork
