The Federal Reserve: Establishing a New Financing Model for Healthier Populations

142nd APHA Annual Meeting and Exposition (November 15 - November 19, 2014): http://www.apha.org/events-and-meetings/annual
Monday, November 17, 2014: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Healthcare institutions, public health agencies, the community development sector, philanthropy, and other partners collectively spend hundreds of millions of dollars to improve health and strengthen the communities they serve. Yet, collaboration is not yet the norm and tremendous opportunity for greater collective impact is lost as a result. This panel will focus on two recently funded, national initiatives supported by the Kresge Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and housed at the Public Health Institute to advance greater collaboration and aligned investment across the health and community development sectors as well as other partners working to build healthier, stronger communities. Leaders in both initiatives, joined by partners and colleagues, will discuss strategies to move this work forward, and opportunities for scale-up and replication.
Session Objectives: Identify emerging best practices and models for engaging the Federal Reserve, financial institutions and the broader community development sector in efforts to build healthier populations, especially in areas where poverty and health inequities are most concentrated. Identify key elements of success as well as challenges and barriers for replication and scale-up. Discuss implications for financing population health initiatives going forward.
