Healthy Communities in the Seventh District

Healthy communities are those that “continuously create and improve physical and social environments and expand community resources that enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and in developing to their maximum potential” (see health.gov and who.int). Since 2013, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has been engaged in conversations on this topic, seeking to improve understanding and advance impact around the social determinants of health across the Seventh District.

The purpose of this page is to aggregate in one place:

  • healthy communities activities carried out by the Community Development and Policy Studies Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago;
  • related Federal Reserve conference summaries and publications;
  • publications exploring alignment that exists between the Community Reinvestment Act and the Affordable Care Act; and
  • links to learn more.

 

Below is a compilation of publications and conference materials relating to healthy communities in the Seventh District.
