Access to safe and accessible housing is a critical factor in healthy aging. As older adults consider their housing options, it is important for public health practitioners to consider the barriers to supportive housing and solutions to address them. TFAH’s fourth AFPHS training focused on the housing challenges and solutions for older adults. Presenters highlighted current challenges and some of the solutions from the federal and local levels.
Our speakers were:
Kim McCoy Wade, Director – California Department on Aging
Juliana Bilowich, Director of Housing Operations and Policy – LeadingAge
Dr. Regina Gray, Director of Affordable Housing Research and Technology Division – United States Department of Housing and Urban Development
