Creating 21st Century Capital Markets for Better Social Outcomes: Transformative Change in Health Equity Through Debt Financing

September 13, 2022 @ 3:00 pm 5:30 pm EDT

Calculator and stethoscope

On Tuesday, September 13, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host a hybrid event on how bond financing could create greater health equity by fundamentally transforming investments in preventative public health.

At the event, experts will discuss:

  • Proposals for creating debt streams that would be repaid by savings created by better health outcomes. This debt could be used to fund preventative public health efforts—like smoking cessation and diabetes prevention— that decrease spending to treat illnesses.
  • Ways to engage traditional players in the bond market with these new approaches and achieve the scale necessary to move the needle on population health.


Participants from municipal finance, investing, regulation, and bond ratings are expected to join. Featured speakers include

  • Dr. Dave Chokshi, visiting fellow at the New York Health Foundation and the 43rd Commissioner at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
  • Nathaniel Counts, senior vice president for behavioral health innovation at Mental Health America
  • Joshua Ogburn, manager of policy for the Nemours Children’s Health System

This hybrid event is open to the public and media. All remarks are on the record and the event will be livestreamed with a recording to be made available afterwards. For media inquiries, please contact Ellen Simon at ellen.simon@ny.frb.org.


This is a hybrid event. You are able to select whether you will attend in-person or virtually when you register. A reception will follow the event for those able to attend in person.
