Finance and health are two overarching topics that go hand in hand in their complexities and importance. Because of this, in 2021, Investopedia and Verywell—two of the largest educational leaders in their respective fields—came together to answer your biggest financial and healthcare questions at Your Money, Your Health, a summit that covered health and finance industry developments following the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the global impacts felt by consumers.

The second annual summit, hosted by Investopedia, Verywell Health, and Parents, occurred on Oct. 20, 2022. This year's live summit, Your Money, Your Health: Planning For Your Future, explored planning and paying for different stages of life, including starting a family, investing for retirement, and seeking medical care as costs rise and technology moves our world quickly forward.
