Housing Is Health: A Public Health Perspective on Homelessness

February 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Los Angeles is grappling with a serious homelessness crisis: close to 53,000 people are homeless on a given night, and more than 39,000 lack shelter. What does it take to enhance the health and well-being of people experiencing homelessness? And how does homelessness impact public health? Join us to explore this critical issue facing our communities and to learn why, in so many ways, housing is health.
