Kristin Aldana-Taday rsvped for Webinar: Racial Discrimination in the Lives of Older Adults Experiencing Homelessness 2020-02-11 18:49:16 -0500

Every year, over 2.5 million people experience homelessness in the United States. We know that people of color, and especially Black people, are overrepresented in the homelessness system. Black people make up 40% of the homelessness population, and nearly 17% of older Black adults have experienced homelessness within their lifetimes. While important to disaggregate data by race, we must also understand the factors that drive these disparities.
New research from the HOPE HOME study in Oakland, CA examines the relationship between race, racial discrimination, and the experience of homelessness for older adults. In his research, Dereck Paul, an MD candidate at the UCSF School of Medicine, identified how structural racism contributed to study participants becoming or staying homeless and how structural racism may increase susceptibility to homelessness.
Join this webinar to hear the findings from the HOPE HOME study and to learn how the relationships between racial discrimination and homelessness can serve as focal points for policies aimed at preventing homelessness.
- Dereck W. Paul, Jr., MD Candidate, UCSF School of Medicine
