Business Engagement in Achieving Population Health: A Workshop
Business is critical to building healthy communities. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Roundtable on Population Health Improvement held a workshop July 30 in New York City that will focus on business engagement in improving population health beyond their important work in worksite wellness and health promotion. Speakers include representatives of businesses (e.g., Dow, IBM, and business coalitions on health) who have been active in efforts to improve the health of their communities. The workshop will focus on the case for business engagement, what businesses can do, strategies for implementation, and how to partner with other community-based stakeholders. This workshop was held at the New York Academy of Medicine.
