    Hello A&O Network Leaders,


    A lot of you have expressed interest in learning more about the health/wealth connection—some of your interest I imagine is due to the proposed policy changes to access to healthcare for low-income households and some of it is due to the increased research and case studies that have been coming out demonstrating the link between health and financial well-being. So, we wanted to remind you of an opportunity to join CFED and Boston Medical Center for a learning event tomorrow on what we’re learning about the connection between these two issue areas:


    Your Finances, Your Health: Making the Health/Wealth Connection happening this Wed, March 8 from 1-2:30pmET.


    To familiarize yourself with this topic, we recommend checking out the following resources:


    We also wanted to make sure you saw the new brief from Asset Funders Network on this topic linked below.

    Subject: JUST RELEASED: The Health & Wealth Connection


    People's relationship with money impacts their health. Far beyond health care access and affordability - -










    The Health and Wealth Connection:

    Opportunities Across the Life Course



    AFN just released its latest brief on the relationship between wealth and health, The Health and Wealth Connection: Opportunities for Investment Across the Life Course. This latest release demonstrates how funders have an opportunity to bridge interests and cross silos to make stronger connections between wealth building, economic security, and prevention and health outcomes. 

    People's relationship with money impacts their health. Far beyond health care access and affordability, wealth and numerous social factors related to where people live, work, and play impacts a person's health. Data indicates assets, income, and health are inexorably linked. On the one hand, good health is associated with higher wealth and income, better employment and education. On the other hand, we know that adults with more financial resources have better health and live longer lives. Throughout one's course of life, the challenges of health and wealth are connected - but why aren't the solutions?

    If you didn't make to last week's live webinar with authors Jason Q. Purnell, PhD, MPH & Anjum Hajat, PhD, MPH, make sure to catch up and listen to the recording posted on our website. Purnell and Hajat explored with participants how health and wealth are connected and discussed how health impacts are more significant for low-income, vulnerable populations particularly people of color. The authors shared compelling evidence for investment in strategies and policies that consider both the physical well-being and economic stability of individuals, families, and communities.

    The Brief, along with its companion Discussion Guide (available to AFN Members by contacting Abby Hughes Holsclaw, abby@assetfunders.org) and the webinar are generously supported by The Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio, The California Wellness Foundation, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and The Richmond Memorial Health Foundation.

    Evidence Review: Housing Services that Improve the Health of Chronically Homeless Individuals

    AcacdemyHealth recently released a rapid evidence review examining current evidence on the impact of housing-related services and supports on health outcomes among the chronically homeless. Findings suggest that permanent supportive housing and case management can improve self-reported health outcomes and reduce health care costs, length of stays in inpatient psychiatric units, and emergency room visits for mental health concerns.
