New York Fed to Co-Host Virtual Event on Investments in Public Health

January 12, 2022

On Wednesday, January 19, 2022, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and New York City's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene will host a virtual event, "Investing in Health: The Intersection of Business, Public Health, and Community Development."

The event will bring together business leaders and public health professionals to examine how the pandemic has changed the scope of social responsibility and the ways in which the private sector is investing in the health of individuals and communities.

Panelists will discuss how they are prioritizing investments to meet local health needs while ensuring equitable impact. They will also discuss how they are measuring social and financial outcomes, and devising mechanisms to boost more private investment and market opportunities in underserved communities.

The event is part of the New York Fed’s focus on three areas affecting community development: household financial well-being, climate-related risks to low- and moderate-income communities, and the social determinants of health.

Featured speakers include:

  • Zinzi Bailey, Social Epidemiologist, University of Miami; Managing Director, Health Equity Research Solutions, LLC 
  • William Burckart, President & COO, The Investment Integration Project
  • Dr. Dave Chokshi, Commissioner, NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene
