World Homeless Action Day
By Communications Staff
October 06, 2011
Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing assistant professor Abe Oudshoorn, along with graduate student and activist Jeremy Jeresky, will join a group of volunteers Thanksgiving Monday in drawing attention to issues around affordable housing in London, which are closely connected to his research on homelessness and health.
Between 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 10, in the parking lot of Museum London, the groups will be erecting a cardboard condominium as part of the demonstration.
The creation of the London Homelessness Outreach Network (LHON), a grassroots organization developed out of the passion to act on homelessness in the city, began as Oudshoorn was disseminating research from his doctoral dissertation on homelessness and health.
Everyone from doctors, nurses and occupational therapists to academics, students and social activists make up the ever-growing LHON, which looks to create awareness and breakdown stereotypes surrounding homelessness in London.
