I have dedicated my career as a physician and research scientist to improving the health of people experiencing homelessness. Today, Toronto faces an ongoing crisis of homelessness. What are the limits of approaches that focus on homeless individuals, rather than the systemic problems that create homelessness? What health care and social interventions are effective in helping people who are homeless get off the street? Do we have the will and the means to solve this problem? Please join me to explore these challenges and the actions that are necessary to resolve this major issue facing our city.
