HAN members Bon Secours Mercy Health, Boston Medical Center, and CommonSpirit Health shared their place-based investment strategies and community partnerships in a series of “Partnering for Health Equity” workshops at the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s (NCRC) annual conference. The HAN member speakers were joined by others from the nonprofit and government sectors to discuss the interconnectedness of SDOH and health equity.
From the NCRC article:
“Bon Secours looks a lot like a community development organization,” said George Kleb of Bon Secours Baltimore Community Works.”We do housing, and we work with banks as investors on projects. We might work directly with CDFIs [community development financial institutions] to provide lines of credit for loans. Or we might work with federal credit unions on home repairs.”
