Webinar: Connections between Income and Health

Friday, April 6, 2018

12 p.m-1 p.m.

More than a century of research has found strong connections between income and health. As a group, people with higher incomes live longer and experience better mental and physical health outcomes. Understanding how income influences health can inform policies, programs and resource allocation to improve both the health and economic well-being of Ohioans.

Health Policy Institute of Ohio hosted a webinar to share highlights from a recent publication, Connections between Income Health. A panel of experts discussed current state-level initiatives to improve incomes and employment opportunities for Ohioans.

Speakers included:

  • Michael Evans, Project Manager, Ohio Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation
  • Greg R. Lawson, Research Fellow, The Buckeye Institute
  • Zach Reat, Health Policy Analyst, Health Policy Institute of Ohio
  • Kalitha Williams, Policy Liaison, Policy Matters Ohio
