Health Policy Prof's Joint Research on Homeless Vets Featured in JAMA

MetrauxDr. Stephen Metraux, professor of health policy and public health at University of the Sciences, has done extensive research on homelessness and housing, mental illness and community integration, prison reentry, and other aspects of urban health. In fact, he is working with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as part of their commitment to ending homelessness among veterans by 2015.

The Journal of the American Medical Association [JAMA] on Aug. 25 published the results of research1 that he took part in to explore the association between misconduct-related separations and homelessness among recently returned active-duty military service members:
