Community Development as a Partner for Health Equity
Wednesday, May 18, 2016 11:00:00 AM PDT - 12:00:00 PM PDT
This interactive webinar will provide an overview of the community development sector, a multi-billion-dollar sector that serves as an action arm for addressing social determinants of health through the development and financing of affordable housing, grocery stores, community centers, health clinics, and services in low- and moderate-income communities. Presenters will focus on the sector’s alignment with the health equity goals of public health, shared measurement strategies, and emerging opportunities for cross-sector collaboration for city and county health departments as a result of the Affordable Care Act and new private investment vehicles. The presentation will conclude with an interactive discussion with audience members about the role of community development in future public health research and practice.
