Mortal Systemic Exclusion and the State of Homeless Mortality

This session will provide an overview on what we currently know about homeless mortality in the U.S. Currently, there are no national estimates of how many people die while experiencing homelessness. However, local jurisdictions and organizations have developed their own methods for determining homeless deaths. Speakers will describe these local efforts and opportunities for aligning homeless mortality data and present findings from a multi-locality study of homeless mortality. Local, state, and federal evidence and policy recommendations from the NHCHC Homeless Mortality Working Group will provide attendees with tangible actions to improve homeless mortality efforts in their communities and institutions.

Speakers: Giselle Routhier, NYU School of Medicine; Ashley Meehan, PhD Student, Johns Hopkins University
