Reducing the negative social determinants of health is a community development and public health imperative. Joining the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on September 29th will be a range of experts from the health and community development fields, including the Milken Institute, the California Endowment, NCB Capital Impact, Health and Family at Work, and leading banks, foundations and universities, committed to participating in the upcoming Healthy Communities Forum.
This forum is intended to explore the potential benefits that low-income families and children would receive from greater collaboration between the community development finance and health fields.
Recently, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco published a journal focused on the important role of the banking community, along with partners in community development, in minimizing negative effects of social determinants of health. As a follow up to the journal, this conference will bring together health and community development finance experts to discuss how we can work together to promote our mutual interest: healthier and more productive communities.
