"Or. Obesity or? You know drug use poverty things like that, and so their approach is well, you have to get at the underlying issues if you want to reduce the the health issues right as a business school person. I'm interested in social venture social entrepreneurship and been interested in social impacts for awhile it's when I hear conversations like that. My mind merely goes to well who who pays for this where? Which parts of society which parts of the economy are feeling the pain which part society which parts of the economy have the resources? Can we design a program such as the people? With organizations that feel the pain and have the resources pay for the prevention pay for the reduction in violence because this energy consulting program, which is very much evidence based way of training the MBA students we were able to say, well, if you have a particular project, you'd like us to work on and think about the long term sustainable business model. We can give you a group of students and advisers and executives to to to work on that problem. Kathy Reeves runs the Center for bioethics set up. You know ceasefire cure violence an amazing program. We've got a lot of evidence. From criminal justice about it works I know and all of what we do is evidence based in this as we can see a thirty percent reduction in the areas in which in violence in the areas in which we operate, which is unlike pretty much any other program in the city. There are maybe two others that have an evidence base to them and the rest are you know? well-meaning. You know coming out of the community but without an evidence base to them And even with that, we struggled to find funding to sustain it from your year and we really start to find funding to expand it. We would like a business model that not just funds it in two precincts, but allows the funded across the entire city. And so two, thousand challenge. That's really great. Can you tell us a little bit more about ceasefire cure violence and how the work being done is different from other crisis intervention programs. Yes. So it's different than in two ways. One US to do with the philosophy. Actually through philosophy who they involve and the sort of commitment to measurement into evidence So the philosophy is they're looking at this as a public health. Problem and if you think about how we stop any kind of academic there's monitoring there's interruption there's prevention. In this case, the monitoring has to do without reaching connection cross the community all the security from the streets to the religious. Organizations to the businesses interruption has to do with. Actually going in right after an incident of violence talking to everybody involved and trying to prevent the tit for tat escalation that almost always happens and prevention has to do with working in the schools around education and with businesses and other organizations to create economic opportunity so that Community trickle young people in community have a future and some. So that's the basic kind of approach. The people they involve is a say no, you can't do this on the outside even the management of it. You know we talk about it being under the Center for Urban Bioethics that's not exactly accurate. That's where the money comes from but there's a nonprofit cease-fire cure violence, which is community based and everybody who works in it is from the community and everybody's higher particularly outreach workers in the interrupters tend to be young people who have. The. Other people at risk. So if we could look at the larger picture for a minute, gun violence is often seen as primarily a social issue not a business issue What steps did you take in the process of building a business model and I'm also curious How did you identify that? What was necessary for the ceasefire violence was it is not all. So. For part of that, came out of the conversation with some Kathy reached out to Cathy Reeves, the pediatrician who's kind of. The Center for Bioethics. And she works in Partnership With Community People's Marla Davis from. The ceasefire cure violence world and the conversation was look we've got a model that we've got research that shows that it works. We know that it works anecdotal Stories, but we also have the actually done research with criminal justice professors looking at the violence reduction in the twenty second precinct. In comparison to what's going in the baseline right statistically significant not. Not, just because what's happening know the larger secular changes? So we can actually see that this particular program works that's Great it's not super expensive, but it costs three hundred thousand dollars for two years for one precinct. So it's not cheap We want this to spread, we need a model of sustained funding. So the question was, how do we sustain funding and when you think about sustaining funding? If you're a business person, you think business model. There has to be a way in which we need to find in the line, the interests of people who have the resources who are willing to pay because otherwise. They their lives in their resource base would be affected So I think of one of the things that we can do in the business school is think really well about alignment of interest in the designing business models that have the people most affected. WHO. Also have resources paying for the problem? So, that that was the the. Way. We refrain the conversation and said, all right. We're up for the challenge and we have our MBA students. Six Mba students and then we supervise them very closely with. Not, just the faculty member in the class like me or whomever. But with a project executive, who's a senior businessperson in a couple three advisors who also business people, and so for this group, we had really good group of students which will always have We had somebody who had built a number of medical. And healthcare organizations and been CEO. So he's thought about that knows the. Issues well, and then we have people with community experience hospital experience in insurance experience on the advisory group. So we got pulled together the right people to think about it what we began to look for is. Who is affected and what are the circles? There's their social circles of violence. You know one person is is shot maybe killed one person did the shooting but then there's the people person who shot and may be killed. People. Watch that. So there's trauma there that might affect their family in some way or another right they've lost a loved one. Depending. On their age and their what they're doing for business where the legitimate or illegitimate and may affect the casual family. Right so you've got psychological pressures social pressures economic pressures on the family. Of the victim if you will but family the perpetrators also suffering right this person is that much more hardened they're running around with with a gun maybe they're going to do this again maybe they're going to get caught and put into jail have the same interruptions of the family dynamics. If someone gets put away for ten twenty years or life is their shot right it hard to say that, but it's it's affecting a social system I. Think we calculated at some point that there were seven layer seven ripples But we simplified it down to three. The primary cost, the secondary costs, and then the social costs and built the model around what are those costs and who's responsible who feels the pain needs to pay for those costs? How does the model lead the way for a sustainable half Ford for funding? Right. So once you figure out sort of the categories of costs involved, then you can do research got what those costs are. What we did is a mixture. Of Primary research out actual costs where we could find them relatively and then secondary research basically looking on through the literature to find other instances that were close enough where people did the estimation someone maybe did an unemployment study here or somebody in Chicago looked at, you know the the cost of food stamps changes you know, and then you kind of put that together with us pile of costs organized by concentric circle. and. Then they ask questions it was like well, who pays for this stuff? So if you think about the direct medical cost. Insurance pays for it. The Way Pennsylvania's said up the insurance companies administer the payments, but the payments were often come from the the state for the social costs that's done through an extra city programs and state programs, but the funding again, federal state and city taxes coming in and all three of those areas and being assembled, and then run in in whatever the programs aren't. So then when you when you do that, you can do a return on investment or social return on investment calculation. The the investment is in this case, three hundred and fifty thousand or so for two years of operations. And then the return on investment would be well if we see a thirty percent drop, which is what the criminal justice people tell us this program is creating You turn that into number of people killed a number of people shot. And then you multiply that by whatever the various costs are. So if we have to less people killed per month twelve people, you know in a year I mean twenty twenty, four less people in a year each person associated with a certain amount of money you know from healthcare and certain amount of money from social impact. We can kinda calculate the savings. So you take the savings divided by the cost and you get you turn on investments pretty straightforward it's the. The basic ideas, how much will save versus how much was cost return on investment. So if you're looking at the Social Roi, the research found that statewide resources offered through the Department of Human Services D H S that could be saved through those prevention measures were significant. Can you tell me more about that? If you look at ditch us more broadly all of the at the state level this is now the people who are paying for food stamps they're paying for. All the mental health they're paying for foster care, right? They're they're paying for the social costs. Then the return vestment is about thirty, two, one, a dollar prevention gets you thirty dollars or savings now we're talking absolutely. And when was When did the students? Evocative See work to create this business model. Yeah. So this was last fall. So the fault of of on Nineteen finishing up in December several people in the city have asked to see the results and we've had meetings particularly with record reinhard the controller We've made sure that the mayor's office has it. So we're trying to get the word out. Well I'm I'm curious. Will you or can this approach be used and other types of interention programs? US. Continue to work with. The. Center for Bioethics. Because you said at the beginning, they have this kind of wide re-met where they're really. Looking at all kinds of health issues as a public health problem and they want to approach it in a variety of ways, and so one program is the ceasefire cure violence. Another program called begin to turn which is. you know the the hardest part of the OPIOID. Epidemic is getting people to begin the turn to to step back in to get out of the you know when you're when you're in the life of the streets when you're deep in your addiction. There's really not much anybody can do. But there are moments in which you can begin begin that term, begin the step away being the step back into Rehab. And if you can be with people that moment and provide enough supports on its interruption idea again, in monitoring interruption. So this program is doing something similar they're monitoring mostly in the Kensington area what's happening? They've got a mobile van, which then shows up to interrupt when there's been. Particular delivery is a lot of overdoses they're they're they're ready to help people begin. That turn and then they work with a variety of different partners to make sure that there's like a network around the person who's wanting to to try to make that step to break out. So we did the same study they're looking for ways to get long-term funding but anyway so there's a model out there now similar approach looking for for that, and now we're. Talking to bow to more programs them one of them to do with wealth creation in the african-american and lat next community, which was you know there's a very persistent. Wealth Gap and there's very strong. epidemological evidence. Connecting, lack of wealth with healthcare, long term health, chronic health care conditions, and so the idea is basically, how can we use anchor institutions to generate more income and more wealth for African next owned businesses American Latin Nixon businesses? So that's that's that's pure economic problem writes a great business school problem but with this really interesting health and social overlay that's great. In closing is there anything that you want to talk about more personal anecdotes about just this work being sort of different and meaningful for you and for other faculty and staff and the students and alumni at Fox? Source of all the the whole approach being out to work alongside with community people and having community people asking the questions and leading the research questions I think is is. Probably in some normative sense, the right way of doing things right we don't know we're academic researchers were coming in from the outside we need to be guided by the people most affected and then from the student perspective. Adults.
