Homeless people suffer from worse health than people who have a regular, secure place to live. Kelli Stajduhar, iPANEL academic co-lead, and Ashley Mollison work together on a study in Victoria, BC about access to care for people who don't have a place to call home. They recently wrote an op-ed on this topic, and Kelli was interviewed for CBC's On the Island radio program.

Kelli Stajduhar presents at The Walrus Talks Quality of Life
On Thursday, June 2, 2016, Kelli Stajduhar, along with seven other speakers, presented at The Walrus Talks Quality of Life in Vancouver, BC. The Walrus Foundation, a Canadian non-profit, hosts this national series of talks, which cover a wide variety of topics that matter to Canadians.
