Podcast: Housing as a Health Care Investment
It’s been widely assumed that there’s a strong connection between affordable, stable housing and the health of children. Now, we have proof. On this episode of the Affordable Housing podcast brought to you by Eden Housing, we’ll learn about the latest research from Children’s HealthWatch and the National Housing Conference that shows that public investment in housing, including housing for homeless families and rental assistance for families who face food insecurity, clearly improves outcomes for vulnerable infants and young children. And it lowers healthcare costs. Joining host Joanne Greene is Dr. Megan Sandel, Principal Investigator with Children’s HealthWatch, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health, and the Medical Director of National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership.
