The Urban Institute, with support from JPMorgan Chase & Co., intends to explore the connections between financial health and inclusive growth. “Throughout the day, leading policymakers, practitioners, researchers, and philanthropists from across the country will share their insights on building financial health into municipal resiliency planning, engaging underrepresented stakeholder perspectives in inclusive growth, creating partnerships between stakeholders in the financial health and inclusive growth fields to achieve shared goals, and harnessing economic growth for all.
“Conversations will be grounded in Urban’s evidence-based insights on the financial health of residents and innovative case examples from various communities. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with others in the financial health and inclusive growth fields.”

Four leading health economists will discuss strategies for slowing health care cost growth, while improving access to high-quality health care in the U.S.
According to the Baker Institute Program Announcement:
“Leading Democratic presidential candidates are proposing dramatic changes to federal and private health insurance coverage for 2021 and beyond. Yet the discussion lacks understanding of why health care has become so expensive, despite the fact that many researchers argue that as much as one-third of U.S. spending on health care is wasteful.”
