Webinar Discussion: Are Our Neighborhoods Making Us Sick?

Thursday, August 16, 2012

1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET

The Intersection of Health Philanthropy, Housing and Community Development

Inadequate housing conditions—the presence of lead, radon, water leaks, poor ventilation, pollution or mold—are linked to poor health. But research also shows that even the neighborhood in which you live can affect both how healthy you are and how long you can expect to live.

Join us on August 16 for a roundtable discussion among experts in the fields of health philanthropy, community development, and housing to learn more about how these sectors are collaborating to improve the health of communities and the individuals who live in them.

The webinar will provide highlights from key articles in the recent issue of the National Housing Institute’s magazine Shelterforce, and will address such questions as:What’s the link between substandard housing, disinvested neighborhoods and health—and how do the community development and housing sectors contribute to better health outcomes for low-income people?How is health philanthropy supporting community health improvement initiatives?Why and how are new sectors such as community development and housing beginning to consider the health impact of their work?What other partners should be at the table to help improve the health of communities and how can they get involved?

The discussion will include:Nancy Andrews, president and CEO, Low Income Investment FundMiriam Axel-Lute, editor, Shelterforce; associate director, National Housing InstituteDavid Erickson, director of the Center for Community Development Investment, San Francisco Federal Reserve BankMarjorie Paloma, senior policy adviser, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
