Housing is a social determinant of health. The affordable housing and health care sectors have each recognized the need to seek out partnerships with the other in order to meet our goals in a way that benefits both sectors. But we have a long way to go in Pennsylvania to take this recognition and turn it into programs and policies. Join us to learn about work in multiple states that leverages the interests of both sectors.
Moderator: Ben Laudermilch, Executive Housing Director, PA Department of Human Services
