This is our second episode in our series on homelessness and housing. Today, Maddie and Nick talk about housing first initiatives as a way to end homelessness and improve peoples’ health. How does employment impact well-being? What is the impact of housing on your health? Join UBC medical student Maddie Elder and her co-host, UBC community engagement librarian Nick Ubels, for a new, conversational podcast where they explore current health research in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES). The podcast is supported by the Making Research Accessible initiative (MRAi), whose goal is to increase the benefit, usefulness, and accessibility of research in the neighbourhood.
