Virtual Panel Discussion: Building Wealth, Building Health
- This event has passed.
Please join Penn LDI for a Virtual Seminar with Amy Castro, PhD, Lucy Marcil, MD, MPH, and Ioana Marinescu, PhD, moderated by George Dalembert, MD, MSHP.
Free and open to the public
The connection between wealth and health was never more evident than during the pandemic. As the temporary expansion of the child tax credit lifts millions of families out of poverty, policymakers are debating more permanent measures to build wealth in disadvantaged communities, such as “baby bonds” and guaranteed income. The impact on health and health care could be dramatic. This panel will discuss the evidence surrounding wealth and health, how health care providers can address their patients’ financial needs, cash benefits as an alternative to health insurance expansion, and real-world experiences in building wealth as a way to improve health.
