Migration is an important factor influencing health and spread of disease; however, it is poorly monitored in individuals with unstable housing. People experiencing homelessness are often transient and migrate for many reasons that include, work opportunities, access to more supportive services, general hospitality of the community to transient groups, escaping violent relationships, sex trafficking, personal legal issues, and family connections to name a few. A think tank will discuss emerging issues related to this topic and help idenitfy influencers for migration.
