WASHINGTON, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in rankings and data-driven community health analysis, will host a range of programming focused on how business leaders, the healthcare industry and beyond can focus on responsible investing and decision-making. The Community Health Leadership Forum, scheduled for April 7 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., will convene business executives, corporate social responsibility leaders, healthcare officials and other stakeholders dedicated to advancing effective solutions for building healthier communities.
The forum is a chance to hear from investors who have successfully found ways to introduce capital into different projects addressing population health while generating a financial return. Speakers include executives from top companies such as JPMorgan Chase, Campbell Soup Company, Eli Lilly and more. Research shows that companies that make corporate social responsibility a priority in their businesses produce positive results both in-house and in their communities. The Business Roundtable, an association of CEOs from America's leading companies, recently emphasized social responsibility in its commitment to stakeholders.
