WhereTown Hall
Description

She will also include content and ideas from her 2018 UCSF Medical Humanities book, Soul Stories: Voices from the Margins and her soon-to-be published Johns Hopkins University book provisionally titled Skid Road: The Intersection of Health and Homelessness in an American Frontier City--about the history and current situation of homelessness in Seattle-King County. That book includes her oral history interviews of many social workers, nurses, physicians, clergy, and activists in Seattle. This Town Hall event will counter the "Seattle is Dying" narrative and will focus on what works and how people can become better informed and involved.
