Part II — Housing

Register Here

Our health is not only driven by what happens in a doctor’s office, or by our habits or behaviors, but also by the conditions in which we live, grow, work, and learn. Collectively these are referred to as the the social and environmental determinants of health, and includes education, income and employment
family and social support, community safety, air and water quality, housing, and transit

Join us for the second in a series of Capitol briefings addressing how factors impact health, and current state and national information on each factor. Part I in this series  dealt with family and social support; the next in this series will discuss the intersection of housing and health, including information on housing stability in Wisconsin, current initiatives to improve health through addressing housing, and considerations for policymakers.

Associate Professor, UW-Madison School of Social Work
