Network Commons is a live online discussion series on cross-sector strategies to improve neighborhood health and well-being, hosted by PHI's Build Healthy Places Network.

How can mixed-income community interventions best be used as a lever to create equitable, healthy places to live? How can mixed-income community efforts cultivate an inclusive community where everyone feels they belong and can thrive?

Join us on June 4th for a special #NetworkCommons exploring the latest research and advances on the connection between mixed-income communities and the social determinants of health. Hear how residents, developers, city agencies, foundations, community-based organizations, and other stakeholders are creating and sustaining inclusive communities through purposeful planning and practices and discuss ways to push toward further inclusion and equity.

With implications for all organizations seeking to promote health and racial equity, our speakers will explore how communities that intentionally steward diversity across income, race, and ethnicity can create stronger and more resilient neighborhoods.
