Resource Summary: In October 2016, Community Health Partners for Sustainability (CHPFS), a program of the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC), hosted a focus group in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers (PACHC) at their annual summit. This provided an opportunity for participants to discuss social determinants of health affecting residents of public housing, underlying legal issues encountered by health center patients, and to discuss the extent of legal assistance, if any, that is currently available at health centers. This publication is a summary of the focus group outcomes.
