Healthy Communities Collaborative: Hospitals Aligned for Healthy Communities
Thurs., November 9, 12 noon to 12:30 0.5 CM credits
Join members of the Healthy Communities Collaborative for an introduction to the Democracy Collaborative's Hospitals Aligned for Healthy Communities toolkit. Nationally, health systems have an estimated $400 billion in investment assets. Redirecting even a small portion of these resources to place-based investments would shift billions of dollars toward addressing economic and environmental disparities in local communities. It would allow institutions to more effectively improve community health and well-being, even as they continue to earn a healthy rate of return. This toolkit outlines a range of strategies for how health systems are using their investment assets to help address the resource gaps that keep communities from achieving better health and well-being.
