On March 26, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation (USCCF), in partnership with BD and Direct Relief, will host the Sparking Innovation to Achieve Health Equity Forum: Engaging the Private Sector in Community Health. This program is a part of the USCCF Road to Wellness series, which focuses on how the private sector is investing in the holistic health of their communities, consumers, and employees. 

Sparking Innovation to Achieve Health Equity Forum will take a closer look at private sector investments and partnerships with community health centers. Throughout the United States, more than 27 million people in medically underserved areas receive healthcare at one of over 10,000 community health center sites. These safety net providers provide high-quality primary care and referral services to the nation’s most vulnerable people, despite operating with limited resources.

Many private sector leaders have recognized the huge potential in community health centers and have used social impact and philanthropic initiatives to invest in their continued operation and success. Through innovative public-private partnerships and strategic investments, health centers across the nation have and can continue to develop innovative, patient-centric, and cost-effective strategies for preventing and treating patients to improve their health and quality of life. This event will bring together a cross-sector of attendees including the private sector, their nonprofit partners, and government to talk about best practices for building successful public-private community health partnerships and investments, and highlight the critical role of community health centers in improving health outcomes.
