Institute for H.O.P.E.™ Seminar Series
Seminar Brings Leading Thought Leaders Together
Research shows that 80% of a person’s health depends on factors beyond the hospital walls – needs like housing, food insecurity, social isolation and employment.
With the support of nationally renowned speakers, the MetroHealth Institute for H.O.P.E.™ aims to deepen understanding of these factors – often referred to as the social determinants of health – and how they contribute to the health and well-being of our community.

Neighborhoods have independent and powerful effects on child and family health that are not addressable through traditional healthcare services. Community leadership and wealth-building by healthcare organizations may be one solution. We present the case of Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Columbus’ South Side neighborhood as instructive.
