Low-Income Participants Wanted for Conference: Environmental Justice, Affordable Housing and Health

Housing Land Advocates is offering scholarships to low-income individuals to attend their November 6th conference on Environmental Justice, Affordable Housing and Health. The conference focuses on the intersection of housing and health. This year's speakers represent diverse perspectives, including environmental justice advocates working to bring healthy homes to low-income communities, local efforts to understand the epigenetics of poverty, design-based solutions to healthcare challenges, and rural efforts to integrate health services in residential communities.

Within all of this, there will an investigation of residential housing patterns in both rural and metro areas, and how changes are impacting the affordable housing stock and health outcomes for residents. HLA's 2015 conference will bring together national, regional and local experts to explore these concepts and consider ways to bring health home.
