Lauren A. Taylor is the co-author of The American Health Care Paradox and a Presidential Scholar at Harvard Divinity School where she studies health policy and ethics. Ms. Taylor received a Master’s in Public Health at Yale where she also worked as a Program Manager at the Global Health Leadership Institute. This led Lauren to an interest in how to make the business case for investing in social determinants of health in order to improve population health.
During Lauren's talk she will briefly present evidence that investments in social services impact health outcomes at the national and state levels. She will also discuss recent policy and regulatory shifts that may support these kinds of investments by aligning provider incentives with different measurements of value. Lastly, Lauren will identify what she sees as the key challenges and obstacles to moving investments in social determinants into the mainstream.
