Issues related to housing are influencing conversations all across California, including those about health. Organizations and institutions are finding new ways to identify, connect, and address housing and health issues to meet these challenges to equitable outcomes. Please join CA4Health for a Web Forum co-hosted by Dialogue4Health, California Chronic Disease Prevention Leadership Project, and the California Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (CaLAPH, a project of the Center for Health Leadership and Practice) to hear how innovative approaches in California are bringing these two issue areas together for greater impact.

This Web Forum will include highlights from:

  • East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation’s (EBALDC) efforts to incorporate and address the broader social determinants of health; 
  • Alameda County Public Health Department’s chronic disease and health equity in housing efforts; and
  • San Diego County’s integration of Housing and Community Development into the Health and Human Services Agency

You are invited to join this informative and interactive event, which is made possible by funding from The California Endowment. Registration is free and open to anyone interested in participating.

Closed captioning is available for all Web Forum attendees
