Guest Speaker:

Craig Pollack, MD, MHS is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  He is a practicing internist whose research focuses on social determinants of health, with an emphasis on housing policy. 



While housing mobility has been shown to impact a range of economic outcomes, its impact on health and health care has remained less clear.  This talk will describe two on-going projects.  The first is a study of children with asthma in Baltimore, examining how moving through Baltimore’s mobility program is linked with changes in home exposures.  For the second project, through a research partnership with US Department of Housing and Urban Development, we linked data on participants in Moving To Opportunity (MTO) to data from three state all-payer hospital discharge datasets and Medicaid data from four states.  We are investigating whether study arm and neighborhood poverty are linked with long term health care use and spending.
