As you listen to this episode, there are approximately 500,000 people who are homeless in the United States. As in, roughly half of the population for the state of Rhode Island! We wanted to know why and, as usual, we went right to ground zero for your expert.
Dr. Margot Kushel, Director of the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations, is recognized as an authority on issues facing the homeless and, this is important, has spent a significant portion of her professional life tackling the problems head-on. Dr. Kushel covers the scope of the problem, the impact on the healthcare system, what she would like to see government agencies do (note: some are taking action), and more. Spoiler alert: Some of her points will possibly make people uncomfortable.
In this edition of Crazy Bids, the state of Maryland is attempting to address the opioid crisis from the front.
All of that and more. A lot more!
