Join us for this networking breakfast and panel discussion event about the connections between housing and health in the Valley.

Our health is inextricably tied to where we live. Having access to safe, stable, and affordable homes – particularly in communities with access to mass transit, parks, and healthy food – can lead to better physical and mental health and improve overall quality of life for Arizonans. Access to safe and affordable housing leads to better physical and mental health and improves the well being of individuals and families. Learn what organizations are doing in Arizona to help bridge the gap between housing and health!

Following our panel discussion the audience will have time for their own Q&A period and a tour of the newly opened Tempe campus of Mountain Park Health Center.

This event is co-sponsored by the Arizona Partnership for Healthy Communities.

Breakfast will be served.
