The National Academy of Medicine organized the Future of Nursing 2030 Town Hall in Philadelphia, PA on July 24 to discuss "Payment and Care for Complex Health and Social Needs." The town hall included comments from Erin Graham, a nurse supervisor with the Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership.

We meet people where they are. Nurses who do this work need ongoing emotional support. This work requires a high level of critical thinking.

Achieving health equity requires both will and commitment on the part of states to shift the health care delivery paradigm away from a solely medicalized understanding of health to one that recognizes in words and deed the sociopolitical context as fundamental to health and wellness.
