Healthy Communities Conference:
Building Systems to Integrate Community Development and Health
Monday, November 7, 2011

Co-Sponsored By:

The Pew Charitable Trusts
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco

As the connections between health and community development become increasingly apparent, foundations, health institutions, government, community development organizations, private sector lenders and others have been experimenting with new ways to collaborate and leverage resources. Scaling these new approaches to measurably improve population health will require fundamental system reform. This conference will convene health experts, community developers, bankers, and policy makers to discuss promising new models and explore three areas of system reform that are urgently needed to formally align community development and health: data, capital, and policy.
