An estimated 70% of variance in health is associated with the social and physical environment in which a person lives. This illustrates the need to address health disparities, poor health outcomes, and high health costs through innovative solutions that target the social determinants of health, such as housing. Please join Krista Egger from Enterprise Community Partners to learn about the pathways through which housing may affect health; a process for integrating health into affordable housing design and development, the Health Action Plan process; and resources available for you to use to put this work into practice. We will also share the story of one community development corporation who utilized the Health Action Plan process in their work.
