Join us for the next session in our year of learning!

Moderated by Taylor Tucker, Director of Training and Outreach, Health Equity Solutions (HES) this session will explore how access to safe and affordable housing is intricately linked to the promotion of health equity and how addressing housing disparities can lead to better health outcomes.

During our time together, we will create a deeper understanding of the social determinants of health that highlight the disproportionate health outcomes vulnerable populations face due to housing insecurity and explore the Housing and Health Equity Lab ran by Dr. Keene and her students at Yale University.
