365Wellness: Study shows when housing quality is poor, children suffer

Samantha Boch, PhD, of the UC College of Nursing is the lead author of a new study that finds poor-quality housing is independently associated with poorer pediatric health, and suggests ways health care providers and housing programs may address those findings. The study, published in the Journal of Child Health Care, was the subject of an article published by 365Wellness.

The study found each additional housing problem was associated with 43% greater odds of having a poorer health status.
