This webinar explored the connection between housing and health, with a focus on emerging research about pathways to improve health outcomes by reducing housing insecurity and improving quality and affordability. Broader social issues, including gentrification and displacement were also discussed.
This was the first online learning event in a new webinar series: Highlights from the 2019 Sharing Knowledge to Build a Culture of Health Conference. The series showcases select sessions from the conference, held from March 6-8, 2019 near Houston, Texas. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in collaboration with AcademyHealth, convened a cross-sectoral community of researchers, practitioners, and thought leaders to discuss and share multidisciplinary evidence related to health and well-being. Now in its fourth year, the conference supports the Foundation’s vision to build a national Culture of Health, where everyone in our diverse society has a just and fair opportunity to live the healthiest life possible.
At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to:
- Describe how housing policies impact health
- Understand the role of community-based participatory research in addressing housing challenges
- Discuss how one public housing redevelopment project measured and addressed resident’s health
- Recognize how housing is connected to broader issues of land use, environmental changes, and adaptation strategies
