Announcing the next installment in the "Let's Get Talking: Social Innovation, Equity and Health" short video series from the Centre for Research on Inner City Health (CRICH): "What's Innovative About Housing First?" (http://www.stmichaelshospital.com/crich/projects/housing.php)
Dr. Stephen Hwang explains "Housing First", a simple and effective way to help people who are homeless and living with mental health problems.
Social innovation is about changing the way people do things in order to create greater social value and to meet more social needs. It means looking at problems - and solutions - from a new perspective. CRICH's "Let's Get Talking: Social Innovation, Equity and Health" short video series explores some of the social innovations that we study, and what health equity means to our researchers. Watch the first installment, “Towards Innovative Solutions: CRICH and Social Change,” at http://www.stmichaelshospital.com/crich.
This series is a companion to our 2010/2011 Impact Report (http://www.stmichaelshospital.com/crich/research-impacts.php), which features stories about research in action: testing solutions, raising awareness and developing tools to support social innovations for equity in health.
