Building a Prosperous Community for All

WEDNESDAY 9:45 AM – 11:00 AM | Health & Wealth – Continental Room

Creating the conditions in which people can all thrive, live, work, and age is dependent on many factors: your zip code, your education and job, and your health and access to quality healthcare. Together these factors comprise the social determinants of health. Employers and workforce intermediaries increasingly recognize the role they play in building prosperous communities, from both a health and wealth perspective. Come learn more about the social determinants and why you should care about them. Learn how employer-based strategies and new partnerships can enable more individuals to fully participate in an inclusive economy.
