Healthy Communities Conference Series

New York, New York | 12/06/2019

The community development and health sectors often work in the same communities, with the same people, towards the same aims, but often separately.

Please join us at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York for a discussion on how these sectors can work together. How they can invest together in the upstream social determinants of health. How they can partner more effectively to improve health and increase health equity.

Invite friends, meet new colleagues, and learn more about innovative and cross-sector work to improve population health.

We look forward to seeing you!


New York Fed President John C. Williams and leaders from New Jersey Community Capital and RWJ Barnabas Health tour one of the refurbished houses in Newark, NJ that is the result of how the healthcare and hosing sectors are collaborating to make a difference.

The top contributors to long-term health may be surprising.  Only a fraction of what affects our health is actually related to healthcare.  Below are links to two videos that provide some insights on how to improve outcomes for long-term health:

*  Meeting People Where They Really Are (David Erickson, Ph.D., Mayo Clinic’s Transform 2018 Conference)

*  What Really Makes Us Healthy? Health Beyond Healthcare (William Dowling, Community Development, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco)
