Health Care for People Without Housing During COVID-19 | LBJ School of Public Affairs | The University of Texas at Austin

Sept. 23, 2020


People experiencing homelessness are some of the most vulnerable here in Austin and all over the country. During the current coronavirus pandemic, social service and public health organizations have had to adjust quickly to safely provide health care and resources like PPE and sanitation to an already hard-to-reach population. Audrey Kuang, M.D., associate director of community engagement and health equality for CommUnityCare Health Centers and an assistant professor at the Dell Medical School, joined LBJ In the Arena to talk about CommUnityCare’s work on the ground to improve and sustain health outcomes for our most vulnerable people and keep them safe from the coronavirus. James Snow, assistant director of the Public Works Department of the City of Austin, also joined us to talk about the city’s efforts to provide safe, temporary shelter and sanitation to those currently experiencing homelessness. The panel will be moderated by LBJ School Professor of Practice Sherri Greenberg, who also serves as the chairperson of the Board of Managers of Central Health.
