Two Weeks and Onward – A Conversation with Home Base Intensive Clinical Program Director Laura Harward, MSW, LICSW

Laura Harward, MSW, LICSW has been the director of the Intensive Clinical Program (ICP) - Home Base's signature program for the past 4 years. In 2015 while working in research at Mass General Hospital, she saw the need for veteran and military family care, and so Home Base was lucky to bring her on board. Laura always has a pulse on the Home Base program, and she shares where it has been, where it is now, and where it is going. Thanks for joining us for this special conversation – Home Base Nation correspondent Chuck Clough brings us this interview with Home Base’s very own, Laura Harward.
