About the Event
Margot Kushel, MD, is Professor of Medicine at UCSF and is the Director of the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations. The UCSF Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative, also directed by Dr. Kushel, strives to prevent and end homelessness by discovering, evaluating, and amplifying research-driven solutions and training the next generation of policy-driven researchers.
According to Dr. Kushel: “There is no medicine as powerful as housing. But the problem is complex. We know a lot about how to end homelessness, but that knowledge doesn’t always reach policymakers and is often not properly targeted. We have far more to learn about designing the most effective ways to prevent and end homelessness.”
