Everyone seems to be talking about the value of cross-sector partnerships to improve health and well-being, but how can Community Development Corporations (CDCs), Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), and affordable housing developers leverage their assets and expertise for effective partnerships with hospitals and healthcare systems? Where do you start?
This June 12th event provided a special preview of our forthcoming resource, “Healthcare Playbook for Community Developers. This event began to answer that question with three national leaders who are building impactful partnerships across the community development and healthcare sectors.
The Network’s Director of Strategic Programs and Research, Renee Roy Elias, with contributions from Alison Moore, author of the “Healthcare Playbook for Community Developers” moderated a rich discussion with three prominent leaders:
- Chris Iglesias, Chief Executive Officer, The Unity Council
- Kimberly Latimer-Nelligan, MBA, Chief Operating Officer, Executive Vice President, Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF)
- Kamillah Wood, MD, MPH, FAAP, Senior Vice President of Health and Housing, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF)
