Affordable housing in safe environments provides a foundation for lifelong health. However, for millions of Americans, such housing is in short supply. This talk reviews housing as a determinant of health, highlighting lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic. It will then share emerging research on the link between housing and neighborhood environments and discuss new approaches that hospitals and health systems are engaging in to screen for social needs and invest in housing security.
