Conference: Transdisciplinary Homelessness Research: Measure H and Beyond

"The week will culminate with an academic mini-conference featuring UCLA homelessness researchers and colleagues from across the region. The conference is designed to foster transdisciplinary discussion and multiple viewpoints of single issues. As rapporteur, Culhane will help identify potential linkages, research opportunities, and data sources that may otherwise have been missed. Likely topics include pathways into and out of homelessness; relationships between the housing market and homelessness; articulating new service delivery models and data collection; mobile phones as a platform for outreach; and at-risk groups like adolescents and veterans. The conference will close with a conversation about sustaining this initiative through a campus-wide initiative, regular working groups, joint research and seed grants."
