Housing and Preterm Birth: Community-Academic Partnership for Research and Action

Appetizers: 4:30PM | Collaboratory: 5-7:00PM | CME Credit Available*

Community-academic partnerships are fundamental to the pursuit of research done differently. The UCSF California Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi-CA) is proud to partner with the San Francisco State Health Equity Institute and four leading community-based organizations to engage and build the knowledge of our inaugural cohort of Benioff Community Innovators - 10 women from San Francisco who are teamed up with SF State MPH students to explore programmatic and policy solutions that focus on the link between poor housing conditions and preterm birth.
