Our Communities, Our Stories, Our Health

2017 Community Health Conference
September 27-29, 2017
Breezy Point Conference Center
Breezy Point, MN

Call for Proposals Now CLOSED!

Throughout Minnesota, we share the common goal of thriving, healthy communities. Yet our paths to reach that ideal are different depending on the support and resources we have and the fears and struggles we face.

We need to listen and learn from one another's stories while acknowledging our different perspectives and what makes us unique.

General sessions will offer skills and inspiration to engage each other in discussions about health. Be guided through a conversation exploring the barriers and biases that make it difficult to unite toward health for all in Minnesota. Learn from colleagues in concurrent sessions and learning stations. Take home an expanded understanding of complex public health issues and new approaches to our work.

2017 Conference Objectives

  • Unite across partnerships, communities, cultures and organizations to improve health for all
  • Share best practices, knowledge and lessons learned from our successes and failures
  • Engage in networking, listen to new ideas and have courageous conversations to build understanding
  • Inspire by encouraging each other and celebrating our efforts
