Brown Bag Lecture Presented by the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy Housing & Health: Conceptual Linkages and Empirical Research Opportunities

Dr. Jim Dunn
Associate Professor
Health, Aging, & Society
McMaster University

Housing is often described as a 'multi-attribute phenomenon.' Consequently, its relationship to health is complex. Moreover, it behoves us to identify what attributes of housing have the potential to influence health and describe what mechanisms may result in such effects. In this talk I will describe a conceptual model of housing and health and also describe a number of different ways that the effects of housing on health may be researched, with a focus on natural experiments. While not all of these study designs allow us to tease out the mechanisms and pathways linking housing and health, they are powerful for assessing the impact of organized housing programs on health outcomes.
