The Health and Wealth Network
What is the Health and Wealth Network?
Prosperity Now's new Health and Wealth Network is a place for practitioners to explore innovative practice and policies that enhance both health and wealth outcomes. The Network brings together practitioners advocates, and researchers from the fields of health, financial capability, and beyond to generate ideas and share solutions addressing disparities in health and wealth. We will explore how to advance medical financial partnerships (MFPs) that address financial and health outcomes concurrently, innovations in research at the intersections of health and wealth, and shared policy priorities and advocacy opportunities. Let’s work together and break down siloes across sectors to identify interventions and policies that make our communities both financially and physically healthier. Join the Health and Wealth Network today to collaborate with others committed to improving community financial, physical, and mental health.
Why the Health and Wealth Network?
Poverty and financial insecurity have a profound negative impact on mental and physical health outcomes; at the same time, healthcare costs can lead to financial stress or even ruin. Moreover, these outcomes for both health and wealth are exacerbated for people and communities of color. Through cross-sector collaboration and policy change, we can work towards health and wealth equity and improved outcomes for all.
