Neighborhoods That Thrive: Creating Safe and Healthy Communities – Feb 21

Posted by The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia on February 4, 2020

February 21, 2020, 8-10 AM  – Join us in discussing how businesses can help improve health and safety in our Philadelphia neighborhoods.

Various social factors determine a neighborhood’s health, including crime, life expectancy disparities, and substance use disorder. If Philadelphia is going to reduce its poverty rate — the highest among the nation’s big cities — it needs to address these issues. On February 21st, the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia will be hosting our next Roadmap for Growth issue forum, Neighborhoods That Thrive: Creating Safe and Healthy Communities. This forum will take a deep dive into how local businesses and organizations are addressing social determinants of community health and what more can be done to improve safety and health in our city’s neighborhoods.
