Project Update

The Home & Community Based Services (HCBS) Clearinghouse recently published our issue brief, “Addressing Food Insecurity in Primary Care: Models for Patient Screening and Referral.” The issue brief is a collaboration between IMPAQ and the AARP Foundation and it describes ways in which health systems have implemented food security screening and referral processes, including partnering with community organizations for referrals, and key factors in their success. 

Presentations & Publications

Last Thursday, Vice President, Labor Dr. James Moore participated in the Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) Career Development Marketplace Careers Unplugged - Town Hall Session. The session gave HCBU juniors and seniors the opportunity to ask questions in an informal environment to HCBU alumni who are currently working within industries that interest them. In addition, our Human Capital Division exhibited at the event and spoke with students interested in pursing a career at IMPAQ.

This Wednesday, IMPAQ’s Health Division will present two posters at the Gerontological Society of America’s (GSA) Annual Scientific Meeting in New Orleans. IMPAQ is also sponsoring GSA’s Gerontologists Giving Back Service Event on Wednesday. Volunteers will work with the St. Bernard Project, a community-based nonprofit organization headquartered in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, to help rebuild houses that suffered catastrophic damage in hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
