What matters most when it comes to good health? Research shows that socioeconomic and environmental factors account for a little more than half of what determines our health outcomes. These factors include not only income and education but the characteristics of the neighborhoods in which we live, such as access to quality affordable housing, grocery stores that carry fresh produce, safe places to play and exercise, and good schools and jobs. Where we live matters. Your zip code is more important than your genetic code when it comes to how long you live.

Join local government representatives, affordable housing stakeholders, advocates, housing counselors, lenders, real estate professionals, education and healthcare professionals to advance health, housing and community development solutions in Ventura County.

This one day Summit will provide opportunities for collaboration around shared cross-sector goals that demonstrate the connection between healthy people, healthy places, and a healthy economy. It will educate and empower stakeholders to overcome housing-related challenges and seize opportunities to improve our communities. Join the discussion centered on regional opportunities with socially motivated investments, community design and planning, the influence of policy, and access to healthy eating and active living opportunities.

Speakers include:

  • David Erickson, Director, Center for Community Development Investments, Federal Reserve Bank San Francisco
  • Shamus Roller, Executive Director, Housing California
  • Thought leaders from throughout the region drawing the connection between the built environment and the health and vitality of a community and its residents.

Sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Ventura County Public Health,  Ventura County Housing Trust Fund and Housing Authority City of San Buenaventura.
