Track 3: The Role of Healthcare: A Prescription for Better Financial Health

Wednesday, May 15 | 11:00 AM — 12:15 PM

Physical and mental health are inextricably linked to financial health. Poor financial health can lead to toxic stress and chronic disease, while poor health can lead to devastating medical expenses and major financial insecurity. As partnerships form between healthcare and financial stakeholders, these two fields have an opportunity to join forces around a common framework that puts “health” at the center. In this session, we’ll discuss emerging cross-sector innovations that address financial and physical health outcomes, strategies for engaging partners, and opportunities to forge a culture that prioritizes financial health as essential to a person’s overall well-being.
