Conference Overview

Locally and nationally there is growing support to improve the population health. More collaboration across entire communities (i.e., cities, counties, states) is the key to success as we move from theoretical frameworks to practical application. In order for any health improvement efforts to work, it’s clear that all stakeholders must work together to create communities that foster and encourage healthy living for all.


The conference will provide a forum for discussion of innovative approaches and solutions, to help engage communities, maintain momentum, measure impact and sustain your efforts. The event will help advocates learn from others who are working toward the same goals, facing the same barriers, and experiencing similar successes and milestones. Join us to learn and connect as we share tools and strategies that will strengthen your efforts to improve the health of your community.




  1. Engage stakeholders to transform and support collaboration on approaches to improve population health.
  2. Identify intersections between healthcare, public health and other key stakeholders as we navigate the new landscape.
  3. Explore collaborative clinical and community-based models designed to improve population health and their application to practice.



Target Audience

Stakeholders in health and wellness, including community, health care and business leaders, program staff and others interested in improving community health.
