Housing and Health: How Your External Surroundings Affect Your Internal Well-being
Thursday, September 17, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT
Category: Professional Development

Across America, segregation has created cities where zip code, economics, and race are closely related. In this Race Bridge discussion, we’re exploring the relationship between neighborhood and health and uncovering the ways that race affects the well-being of those living in under-resourced areas.

This discussion will cover:

  • The influence of neighborhood socioeconomic status on public health and what populations are most vulnerable
  • Neighborhood displacement, stable housing, and environmental justice
  • Interventions that can improve the health outcomes in high-risk communities
  • Milwaukee’s Department of City Development’s 2018 Anti-Displacement Plan

This discussion is hosted in partnership with the Milwaukee Film Minority Health Film Festival, which runs now through September 24, 2020.  Affiliated films are Cooked: Survival by Zip Code, Decade of Fire, and There Goes the Neighborhood.
