Business Transforming Community Health

This panel will explore how good health and good business form a virtuous cycle, by discussing how leading businesses and nonprofits are engaging with the local communities where they reside. The panelists share a connection to a specific partnership in Newark, New Jersey; and they will explore health issues through the lens of that particular community.  More generally, the panel will discuss why health is key to business in communities throughout the United States, and how the business community can engage with communities to tackle their pressing health challenges.
