This guide is the second guide in a series of resources from the Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET) and Association for Community Health Improvement (ACHI) on how hospitals can address the social determinants of health— such as adequate housing, quality education and access to transportation— to improve the environment where people live, work and play. It includes five case studies about hospitals and health systems engaging in innovative programs to address different housing issues in their communities.
