Date:12/12/2012

ST. LOUIS, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GlaxoSmithKline plc (LSE/NYSE: GSK) today proceeded with the next city stop in its national initiative to examine the barriers and identify opportunities to build healthier communities in the United States. The program, "A Conversation on Community Health" – which kicked off in Philadelphia in September – is taking place today in St. Louis as the second of three events The Atlantic is hosting in U.S. cities to explore what it means, and what it takes, to be a healthy community.

GSK is underwriting the events to uncover innovative and community-based collaborations with health organizations, public officials, advocates and citizens that will guide a new approach to improving health at the local level. Insights gained through the series of local discussions will help shape the future strategic direction for GSK's community programs and local engagement in the U.S.

"At GSK, we're always asking ourselves what we can do to be a better partner in the communities in which we serve patients to ensure that they have the resources and opportunities they need to live healthier lives," said Deirdre Connelly, President, North America Pharmaceuticals at GlaxoSmithKline. "While there are many innovative and effective local community programs doing great work across St. Louis, and in other cities across the United States, we believe it's possible to work together even more effectively to drive greater collective impact. It is urgent that organizations collaborate to uncover new ideas, and rethink incentives for improving the overall health of the community as a whole."

In St. Louis, The Atlantic will convene an expert working summit of some of the region's top minds in the fields of medicine, public health, academia, government, business and philanthropy to analyze the broader factors that influence he
