Coffee & Science: Hot Topics in Social and Health Care Integration

Wrap Party December 3rd!

SIREN Coffee & Science is a biweekly series of 30-minute conversations between experts in social interventions research, practice, and policy. Join our live events to hear leaders grapple with thorny issues at the intersection of clinical and social care. You can also listen to the conversations on demand at any time by subscribing to our podcast on Apple, StitcherSpotify, or using the links below.

Our events are organized around the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s “Five As Framework”, which defined roles that health care organizations can play in integrating social care. For more on what each of the five “As” means and why SIREN adopted this framework for the series, check out our special introductory podcast episode with Dr. Laura Gottlieb and Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo.

This event will be a zoom meeting, not a webinar! We hope you will join us to share both thought-provoking insights you heard on Coffee & Science and questions you are still thinking through.
