Recording: Housing as Medicine: Can We Afford the Rx?, Mar 11, 2019

Housing and health are inextricably linked. Without a place to call home, it’s nearly impossible to provide for basic needs. Homelessness and inadequate housing are not only problems of poverty, they are major health issues.

Across the country, options for affordable housing are fast dwindling while rates of homelessness rise – a crisis exacerbated by a rapidly expanding health-wealth gap. In an age where we can access a medical diagnosis through an app and monitor our vitals through a wristwatch, how can we innovate our way out of the affordable housing and homelessness crisis?

Our panel of business, health care, government, and community innovators will share how cities are using data-driven approaches and developing public-private-citizen partnerships to implement smart policies.
