Innovations in Public-Private Collaboration: The Edge for Business and Health of the Public

June 18, 2012
The nation's success in building healthy communities is impacted by the progress and dissemination of cutting edge private and public models and collaborations that are being developed today. Toward that end, Microsoft, an NLC Corporate Partner, in partnership with government and business leaders, foundations and though leaders, has facilitated forums in communities across the country (Miami, San Diego, and Chicago) focusing on cross-cutting approaches that contribute to building healthy communities.

We are witnessing the emergence of a new and exciting era of public-private partnerships at the intersection of business and public health. Building healthier communities, partners are improving health, economic and educational opportunity. Models extend to education, workforce, not for profit organizations and foundations. Synergies exist in both the challenges and opportunities facing these sectors economic and social components.

On June 21 from 10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (EST), "Innovations in Public and Private Collaboration: The Edge for Business and Health of the Public" will be convened in Washington D.C.
