Incourage – Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
Investing in Health Communities
Ideas to Action for Healthy People, Places, and Planet
What is a "healthy community?" What successful strategies are communities using to collaborate across sectors to promote healthy people and strong economies? What are the opportunities for strengthening the interdependence between urban and rural communities? How are banks, CDFIs, philanthropy, and others investing to foster equitable access to health and prosperity for all? Why is investing in environmental sustainability important for people and places?
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Incourage are collaborating with the Adams County Health Department, Aspirus Riverview Hospital & Clinics, Inc., Avivar Capital, CAP Services, Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, Forward Community Investments, Impact Seven, Michael Best Strategies, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, USDA Rural Development, University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, and the Wood County Health Department to host this event.
This daylong conference will share leading practices in healthy economic development, sustainability, and investment, with a special focus on rural and regional approaches to move from ideas to action. The conference will also include strategies for ongoing collaborative work with a new administration in 2017.
