Continuum Awarded by the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce

On Tuesday, June 16, The Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce’s Health Care & Life Sciences Council awarded Continuum in the Nonprofit Category at the 18th Annual Health Care & Life Sciences Awards.

The virtual ceremony recognized individuals and organizations that have gone above and beyond to support the Greater New Haven business community during COVID-19. Continuum was honored for the compassionate and proactive way in which all levels of our organization worked toward caring for and protecting our clients and staff during these several months of the COVID pandemic. The Chamber recognized Continuum’s efforts in implementing new policies for screening, and in proactively and vigorously protecting and nourishing clients and staff by providing supplies and tools for cleaning, protecting, working from home, adjusting staffing levels, and more amidst the crisis.

Honorees in each of the other category were: Well-Being/Wellness Program Honoree: Yale New Haven Hospital Employee & Family Resources (EFR); Clinical Program Honoree: Grant Street Partnership at Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center;  Bio/Life Sciences Honoree: Homodeus, Inc. for their exciting new early, rapid, affordable coronavirus home test; Research Company Or Project Honoree: The Jackson Laboratory for the research and expert curated information relevant to coronavirus research; and Manufacturing Company Honoree: Bio-Med Devices for two specialized ventilators critical to treating the virus.

The event opened with an impressive panel of experts from Greater New Haven’s health care and life sciences community. Panelists discussed the current news on the COVID-19 pandemic in the State; innovative strides that companies in Greater New Haven have made in the areas of COVID-19 research, promising new therapies, tests, and vaccines; and solutions for addressing racial inequity in their respective fields.  Panelists included Dr. Todd E. Arnold, Ph.D., Chief Laboratory Operations Officer, Sema4; Dr. Albert Ko, MD, Chair, Department of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases, Yale School of Public Health; David Lehman, Commissioner & Governor’s Senior Economic Advisor, Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development; George Llado, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc.; and Erika R. Smith, CEO, ReNetX Bio, Inc.

Garrett Sheehan, President & CEO of the Greater New Haven and Quinnipiac Chambers of Commerce, shared, “Our region’s robust health care and life sciences community will advance health care across the Greater New Haven region. Panelists also affirmed that Connecticut, and specifically this region, are renowned as a primary bio science hub in the country.

Dismantling Structural Racism in Community Development Finance

In an opinion piece for ImpactAlpha, LISC COO Annie Donovan draws on the expertise she honed as head of the CDFI Fund to illustrate the layered ways that BIPOC community development entities are locked out of federal tax credit allocations and other resources. "The disproportionate results reflect the same deeply seated structural barriers that prevent minority-owned enterprises from accessing credit in other parts of the economy," she writes, explaining that Congress, and the rest of us, must help remedy this inequity. 

LISC CEO: Investing in Black-owned Businesses is Good for America

In a lively Q&A with Tony Lawson, co-founder of ShoppeBlack, LISC's CEO Maurice A. Jones talks about the many levels of impact that investing in black-owned small businesses can have on our country's wellbeing. The intentional effort that created the racial health and wealth gap can only be undone through intentional effort, he explains—a remedy that ultimately boosts everyone's standard of living.

An Accurate Census Count is Imperative for America. Here’s Why.

Matt Josephs, LISC SVP and head of the organization’s policy team, makes the urgent case for why a fair and accurate census count is so important for the health and wellbeing of our communities. Anything short of that undermines equity and thwarts our democratic process. Every one of us, he writes, has a role to play in making sure the census is successful.
