J.P. Morgan


On January 13, J.P. Morgan hosted its 39th Annual Healthcare Conference with a panel on The Price of Pandemics, which focused on the social determinants of health and the disparities in health and race that have exacerbated inequality in the United States. Michelle Williams, Dean of Faculty, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, moderated a conversation with Tracy Palandjian, CEO and Co-Founder, Social Finance; David Cutler, Otto Eckstein Professor of Applied Economics, Harvard University; and Lawrence H. Summers, Charles W. Eliot University Professor and President Emeritus, Harvard University and 71st Secretary of the Treasury.

Health begins way before you get sick. It’s all the stuff that doesn’t have a medical billing code, that doesn’t get delivered in the doctor’s office, that doesn’t happen at a hospital, but rather where health starts—in homes, schools, communities, the workplace. Tracy Palandjian, Social Finance CEO and Co-Founder
