HomeAffordable Housing PodcastThe impact of affordable housing on children’s health

There are direct links between children’s health and access to safe, appropriate affordable housing.

In her work leading the Child Health Impact Assessment Working Group, Dr. Lauren Smith, Medical Director of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, has uncovered many links between safe, appropriate affordable housing and children’s health. In this episode of the Affordable Housing podcast, Dr. Smith explains the ways in which children’s health suffers when they’re denied stable housing and how connecting the dots will hopefully inform policy to improve access to acceptable affordable housing for low income families.
