Resource Summary: The first of five webinars in the Weitzman Institute\'s Path Forward \"Moving from Screening to Solving for Social Needs\" series focusing on the intersection of stable housing and health outcomes with presenters Tim Shaw; Associate Director of Policy, Financial Security Program, Aspen Institute, David Rich; Executive Director of Supportive Housing Works, and Jason Shaplen; Chief Strategy and New Ventures Officer, Community Health Center, Inc.

Resource Details: Stable housing and health outcomes are inextricably linked. When a patient loses housing – or is in jeopardy of losing housing– health outcomes suffer. COVID has led us to a moment of crisis. Thirty million to 40 million people in the United States face eviction. People of color are disproportionately impacted. Addressing housing as a social determinant of health is critical to achieving health equity. This webinar brings together experts from housing, healthcare and the intersection of both to share innovative short- and long-term solutions you can implement in your community.
