How to Build Long-Term Financial Wellness

Participate in an evidence-based conversation about how you can build long-term financial wellbeing.

We know that cash provides a safety net for short-term financial well-being, but how can we move from short-term financial stability to longer-term financial health?

Join us and the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis on August 5, 2021 starting at 1:00 p.m. CT / 2:00 p.m. ET to talk about evidence-based factors that can help improve long-term financial well-being.

Researchers Jeremy Burke, Stephen Roll, and Emily Gallagher will share their insights into the mitigating effects of cash and cash equivalents during a financial shock, the key factors contributing to long-term financial stability, and programs, policies, and behaviors that could aid long-term financial wellbeing. Hector Ortiz, Senior Policy Analyst at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, will moderate a discussion with researchers following their presentations, including the opportunity for attendees to ask their own questions.

Join this important conversation about the current research and identify much-needed opportunities for future research to build longer-term financial health.
