Description

We invite you to The Health and Wealth Connection in Columbus: Opportunities for Investment Across the Life Course, Thursday, April 27, 9:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. exploring the intersection of Health and Wealth.


There is mounting evidence that the issues of financial, physical, and mental health are inexorably linked. The bi-directional relationship between health and socioeconomic status is one of the strongest and most consistent findings in public health, and health disparities remain among the most fundamental challenges to improving our nation’s health.

Far beyond health care access and affordability, wealth and numerous social factors related to where people live, work, and play impacts a person’s health. Data indicates assets, income, and health are inexorably linked.


Throughout one’s course of life, the challenges of health and wealth are connected — but why aren’t the solutions?


Dr. Jason Q. Purnell from Washington University of St. Louis will showcase a new AFN Brief focused on the topic of health and wealth. His presentation will be followed by an interactive panel discussion exploring the implications of these findings for Columbus and highlighting local innovators already linking the issues of health and wealth to create better outcomes for low and moderate income families in the area.

Grantmakers, we also invite you to join us for a luncheon from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. following the morning Forum to discuss opportunities to identify common interests and cross silos to find connections among strategies focused on wealth building, economic security, and prevention and health outcomes.
