Dr. Kertesz "Reframing the Debate"

We would like to share an article and audio interview on Housing First from the December 1, 2016 New England Journal of Medicine.  DOPM faculty member is the lead author. Housing First is an approach to permanent housing for homeless individuals. Although some have claimed it can reliably save more money than it costs, recent trials have found that not to be the case. Dr. Kertesz and his team offer a case statement for this social investment based on its effectiveness, it's low cost, and its ethical importance.
