The connection between health and housing is well-established. People who are precariously housed have worse health than those who have stable housing arrangements.- Persons moving into public housing have a higher illness burden than the general population, and public housing residents engage in less healthy behaviors, which contribute to public housing residents having poorer health than persons living in other housing situations. Public housing authorities and residents can benefit from authentic and constructive relationships with academic partners; academicians and students can benefit from engaging in partnerships with housing authorities and residents to better understand the connection between housing and health. This article describes the well-established relationship between the Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) and the Durham Housing Authority (DHA), the evolution of that relationship, our collaborative work in improving the health of DHA residents while advancing nursing education and science, and lessons learned.
