The Health Care for Residents of Public Housing held a National Training Conference from May 1 - 3 in Alexandria, Virginia. During the conference, the DCHA Citywide Resident Advisory Board Health Planning Committee presented at a workshop entitled, “Improving Health among Public Housing Residents in the District: A Resident-Driven Process.” The panel consisted of Kenneth Council, who chairs the DCHA committee, and committee members Diana Lapp, Deputy Chief Medical Director of Unity Health Care; Robert Grom, Chief Development Officer and Deputy Director of the DC Cancer Consortium; and Charles Debnam, Director of Health Education Services at Breathe DC.

Panelists shared highlights of the DCHA committee’s work to implement a resident-driven community health needs assessment, collaboration to address the tobacco health issues and smoking cessation, and the extreme health challenges that face public housing residents.
