Join us for a webinar on Advancing Health Equity Through Housing Law and Policy
Register today for our next webinar on July 16 to learn how housing laws and policies can have both intended and unintended consequences on health in urban and rural areas.
You'll hear from experts with The Network for Public Health Law, who will provide an introduction to public health law and policy, and explain how laws and policies related to gentrification, eviction, and homelessness can improve or further embed health inequities.
In addition, we'll share insights into where you can start with smaller policy-oriented solutions, as well as community-wide solutions that embrace comprehensive, tailored approaches that focus on collaborative efforts and broad partnerships.
