Health and Housing Partnerships for an Equitable Response and Recovery from Covid-19
As the housing and health care sectors come together to forge partnerships, it is important to understand how both sectors contributed to the inequities that led to significant racial disparities in health outcomes in the United States. During this webinar, participants will learn how to center equity in their health and housing partnerships to support their response to and eventual recovery from Covid-19, recognizing the disproportionate impact the pandemic is having on communities of color.

Priscilla Almodovar, Enterprise Chief Executive Officer, and Hala Farid, Citi Community Development-Office of Inclusive Housing SVP/Director, will give opening remarks, followed by our keynote speaker, Dr. Tiffany Manuel, best-selling author and President/CEO of TheCaseMade. DrT, as she prefers to be called, will talk about the historic and existing inequities in the way we treat health as well as the opportunities, practices and tools that can be used to respond and recover from Covid-19.

Poet Marc Bamuthi Joesph will join us prior to a panel on how affordable housing organizations are centering health and equity in response to Covid-19. This panel will be moderated by Juan Sebastian Arias, Deputy Director of Policy, Mayor’s Office at City of Chicago and include panelists Richard Gerwitz, Managing Director and Co-Head, Citi Community Capital; Jacquelyn Thornton, public health and housing professional; and Angela Hurlock, Executive Director, Claretian Associates.

After the convening, participants will:
• Have an improved understanding of the aspects of the health and housing systems that create inequitable outcomes
• Identify opportunities for health and housing partnerships to reduce health disparities
• Identify equity-focused strategies that can be used when forming effective health and housing partnerships
