The economic and community development sectors share much in common with the public health and medical care sectors. While the focus of their approaches may somewhat differ, overall they mutually aspire to promote the vibrancy and well-being of vulnerable, at-risk communities. These sectors have all come to understand that affordable housing, access to educational opportunities, and jobs that pay a livable wage influence individual health status and societal well-being. Yet, these sectors do not typically collaborate to leverage their financial, human, and institutional knowledge, skills, and resources for maximum impact. This paper will amplify an understanding of each other’s needs and responsibilities, and identify opportunities to more effectively work together to build healthier communities.
