How can the maximum health benefit for the homeless population of Multnomah County be achieved from health care reform and expansion of the Oregon Health Plan? Homelessness remains a complex public health challenge. For too many individuals, the relentless struggle for safety and stability overshadows health needs.

Challenges in caring for those experiencing homelessness reveal deep fault lines in our current health care system. This forum will discuss City Club's newly released report on health care and homelessness, and the issues we are facing as a community.
