Strong and Thriving Communities: Invest Health
Join fellow funders for a presentation on Invest Health, a national initiative from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Reinvestment Fund.
Invest Health convened national leaders to develop strategies that leverage private and public investments for better health & well-being in 50 of America’s mid-sized cities. Jennifer Fassbender, Director of Program Initiatives from Reinvestment Fund, will speak about the national Invest Health initiative and the possibility of adapting it as a single-state model in New Jersey. Additionally, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will speak on their experience with the initiative and the vital importance of investing in New Jersey communities with a health and equity lens.
The Invest Health program takes a collaborative and solution-driven approach to drive holistic change in a city, focusing on nutrition, housing, job quality, safety and justice, and environmental factors. All funders will want to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about Invest Health and discuss the possibility of leveraging learnings and resources in a unique opportunity to bring this initiative closer to home.
