Recording: Home is Where the Health Is, Mar 12, 2023

Significant barriers to basic essential healthcare and services are often traced back to the “Three A’s of Access: Availability, Acceptability, and Affordability.” Health determinants are dictated by neighborhood, stable access to shelter promotes public health. We know this by now. Let’s talk about the fourth A, Addressing the problem. This is more than just building more homes, it's about building healthy communities through safe, affordable, quality housing. It's data collected from residents, shared across siloed organizations to create more equitable policies. It’s being done, communities are changing, health is improving, and technology is facilitating. Join our panel of changemakers for a discussion on all four A’s of this public health crisis and come home, to where the health is.
