Sunday, Apr 7 2019 at 2:00 - 5:00 pm

From YaleWomen Connecticut: “Opening the aperture” about issues that affect women–engaging in conversations, discourse, and discovery. This is some of YaleWomen’s best work! Join us for a thought provoking conversation about the issue of homeless: Who are the homeless? What are the causes of homelessness? What are the solutions? With these Yale women alums – graduates of the Schools of Management, Nursing, and Public Health – who are making a difference: Madeline Ravich '09 MBA is the Development Advisor and Director of The BE HOMEFUL Project of the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness. She oversees all of CCEH’s fundraising efforts. Katherine McCormack '81 MPH, RN, MEP has worn many hats in service to the City of Hartford, including Director of Emergency Management and Director of Health. Linda Schwartz ’84 MSN and ’98 DrPH has worn many hats in service to veterans, including Commissioner of Veteran Affairs for the State of Connecticut and assistant secretary for policy and planning for the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Linda continues her work on women veteran issues with a program that began when she was Commissioner of Veteran Affairs, "Have You Ever Served?" which supports efforts to identify veterans in the community and with health care providers.
