Aging & Homelessness: Causes, Consequences, and Solutions

Session moderated by Bob Wachter

San Francisco and California have been reckoning with the issue of housing instability for years, but what additional complexities arise as people experiencing homelessness grow older? In this Grand Rounds, we’ll talk to Margot Kushel, MD, one of the world’s leading experts on homelessness. We’ll discuss the drivers and precipitants of homelessness and the health consequences of the aging of the homeless population. Margot is professor of medicine and directs both the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations and the UCSF Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative.
