Health, Homelessness, and Criminal Justice (HHCJ) Lab
The Health, Homelessness, and Criminal Justice (HHCJ) Lab is housed within the Hennepin Healthcare Research Institute. We conduct research that focuses on the complex drivers of health for people with homelessness and/or criminal justice involvement. Within this context, we study physical health, mental health, and substance use conditions and the overlapping systemic barriers to health, often driven by structural racism.
Our overarching goal is to improve health for people with homelessness or criminal justice involvement in our community, in Minnesota, and across the United States through research and collaboration with a broad coalition of partners.
