Each fall, GIH offers programming designed for funders with a strong interest in health policy. These meetings, collectively known as the Fall Forum, are an excellent opportunity for funders with a strong interest in health policy to get up-to-speed on current issues, interact with leading thinkers, and connect with their grantmaking peers.
Food for a Healthier America will examine current food access and security policy, the gaps and challenges laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic, the opportunities for positive policy change, and philanthropy’s role in creating a more equitable and just food system.
Better Health, Stronger Democracy will explore how health funders are promoting civic engagement, protecting voter rights, and engaging in post-census electoral redistricting.
