Rochester TRENDS: Business Investment in Healthier Communities

Businesses are gaining a greater understanding of the effect that employee health and the health of the communities in which they operate have on their success. No matter the size, type, or location of a business, many of them are proactively looking to improve health in their communities. To better understand the growing relationship between business and community health, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center has partnered with the Action Collaborative on Business Engagement in Building Healthy Communities.

At this Rochester TRENDS Featured Speaker Series experience, Lawrence Bowdish and Sara Zellner of the U.S. Chamber Foundation explore findings of this research including the business motivation for investing in community health, the processes involved in that effort, and the challenges stakeholders face when pursuing these initiatives.

Takeaways include: - Business investment in health as part of corporate citizenship efforts
- The growing influence of health and wellness programs run by businesses or health insurers
- The embracing of community health by the private sector
- The relationship between health and the communities where employees, customers, and their families live This series is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Avani Technology Solutions, Inc
Time: 7:30-10:00 a.m.
