Housing as a Social Determinant of Health: Strategies, Tensions and Reforms

Wednesday, February 26 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm
Cunz Hall, Room 160
1841 Neil Ave.

The intersection of housing and health has been long recognized as an important social determinant of health.

Hear from Jason Reece, Knowlton School of Architecture 

My talk will explore the tensions surrounding various housing intervention strategies, with a particular focus on the debate surrounding investing “in place” versus supporting “housing mobility” as a social determinant intervention. The presentation will look at the benefits and limitations of both strategies and introduce structural conditions which is exacerbating housing instability in the U.S.
