Affordable and safe housing has an important impact on the health of children. During this webinar, we will discuss findings from NHC’s analysis of recent research conducted by Children’s HealthWatch that shows that access to affordable housing is associated with lower risk of hospitalization among infants from vulnerable, low-income families. Speakers will also discuss the policy implications of this research and policy solutions that would increase access to affordable housing for low-income families.
