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. How does homelessness impact public health? And what does it take to enhance the health and well-being of people experiencing homelessness? Join us to explore this critical issue facing our communities and to learn why, in so many ways, housing is health.
