Linking health and wealth: How economic vitality can lead to healthier Ohioans 

In order to be healthy, we all need the opportunity to earn a sufficient income and live in affordable, safe housing. As health departments, providers and insurers increasingly are held accountable for improving population health,  the need to address poverty and foster economic vitality becomes even more important. Policymakers often cite the need to improve our state's economic climate, however opinions on how to best accomplish this goal vary.

This forum explores state policy options to improve health outcomes and health equity by increasing economic development, labor force participation and income mobility.

Speakers include:
Anjum Hajat, University of Washington School of Public Health 
* David Norris, Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity
* David Lipsetz, Housing Assistance Council
* Hannah Halbert, Policy Matters Ohio
* Rea Hederman, The Buckeye Institute

Paenlists include:
* Alex Derkson, JPMorgan Chase
* Sally Levy, United Way of Central Ohio
* Mary Helen Petrus, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland

Lunch will be served (vegetarian options available)

Registration begins at 9:00 am, with program starting at 9:30 am.
