Network Commons is a live hour-long online discussion series on cross-sector strategies to improve neighborhood health and well-being.
If ZIP code is more important than genetic code in determining one's health and opportunities, how can doctors play a role in creating healthier and more opportunity-rich environments for all children? Join us to hear from physicians and healthcare leaders who are driving positive change at their hospitals and in the communities where their patients live, learn, and play.
Panelists from Boston Medical Center, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Cincinnati, and Nationwide Children’s Hospital will discuss the important roles they and their hospital partners played in guiding and accelerating neighborhood investments that support the health of local children and families.
The discussion will build on a recent peer-reviewed article summarizing the field of community development investment that explores the role of physicians and hospitals in advising, collaborating, and partnering with community developers to accelerate and maximize the impact of billions of investment dollars to support healthier neighborhoods where all children can thrive.
