In Partnership with the Community Health Training Institute

Did you know that safe and affordable housing, economic security and strong communities have a positive impact on health outcomes according to research? Did you know that there are increasingly more opportunities to bring diverse sectors together to create healthier residents and more vibrant communities? 

The release of the Community Investment Tax Credit Health Impact Assessment in September 2014 catalyzed local and statewide conversations about how we can more intentionally integrate community development, public health, and health care efforts.  Join us to continue this conversation and identify opportunities to leverage the public health outcomes of community development.

In this interactive half-day session we will have cross-sector discussions where we will identify practical and actionable ways that community developers, public health advocates, and health care leaders can leverage resources and reduce disparities. In addition, we will walk through national and local policies and opportunities, including the Affordable Care Act, that provide opportunities for diverse sectors to partner together for collective impact.

"Bring a Date": Invite a local health organization/center (if you are a Community Development organization) or a local community development organization (if you are a health organization) and pay only $15 for your partner!
