CREW Boston

Hospitals & Housing: Making Connections and Forging New Partnerships

Massachusetts Housing Partnership
160 Federal Street, Boston MA

Members Only

Dr. Megan Sandel from Boston Medical Center will join us in a conversation about making connections between housing and hospitals to improve our communities together.  Dr. Sandel will walk us through why hospitals are interested in housing and community development, and why this interest is increasing in Boston today.  Come to learn more about how hospitals invest in communities, and the different obligations and investment programs through which hospitals make investments.  Dr. Sandel will also share the story of BMC’s recent $6.5M commitment to housing and supportive services in their service area, and their plan for future investment.  Join CREW Boston's Housing & Community Development for a great presentation and stay for the exciting discussion – please bring your questions and ideas as well!

In 1998, she published with other doctors at Boston Medical Center, the DOC4Kids report, a national report on how housing affected child health, the first of its kind, and over the course of her career, Dr. Sandel has written numerous peer reviewed scientific articles and papers on this subject. In 2001, she became the first medical director of the founding site for medical-legal partnerships, Medical-Legal Partnership-Boston, and from 2007-2016 she served as the Medical Director of the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership.
