2020 Washington State of Reform Keynote: Connecting Housing to Health, Lessons from Hawaii

Josh Green, MD, serves as the Lt. Governor in Hawaii. There, he has risen to national prominence as he has drawn a clear line between housing, health policy, and state finances. His approach, which would make housing a covered benefit for the chronically homeless, has shown promise for improved individual health and lower costs for Medicaid plans.

Lt. Gov. Green joined us at the 2020 Washington State of Reform Health Policy Conference as our lunch keynote, where he discussed his approach to connecting housing and health, and his experiences in Hawaii.
