Join the American Hospital Association and Build Healthy Places Network on November 9, 2022, to learn more about upstream health care community investments in rural areas. This live conversation will spotlight A Playbook for New Rural Healthcare Partnership Models of Investment, highlighting core strategies used by health care organizations that are leveraging multisector partnerships to improve health and well-being. 

During this webinar, leaders from Build Healthy Places Network will take a deep dive into how hospitals and health systems can partner with the community development and public health sectors to maximize the impact of community investment to more effectively reduce poverty, advance economic development and improve health in rural communities.
