Abstract: The Health and Housing in Transition Study is a longitudinal cohort study tracking the health and housing status of a representative sample of 1,190 homeless and vulnerably housed adults in three Canadian cities (Vancouver, Toronto, and Ottawa). The purpose of this talk is to provide an overview of the study, discuss some of the challenges and lessons learned from conducting longitudinal health research with this vulnerable and hard-to-reach population, and present some preliminary results.
This talk is open and will include a light lunch.Please note that we will be taking a break from our WiP series until September. Please visit our websiteto see our 2015–2016 WiP schedule.
