Healthiest State Agenda Setting Convening
October 31-November 1, 2017

As a leader working to improve health equity in Wisconsin, we are pleased to invite you a strategic visioning session on October 31 - November 1 in Madison, WI. This convening is intended to create a shared agenda toward aligned action for the inaugural Wisconsin Healthiest State Summit debuting in fall 2018. In addition to agenda setting, we will strengthen our collective voice to expand the understanding of what shapes health in Wisconsin’s policy arena through training and Capitol visits.


Wisconsin has a long legacy of a strong commitment to advancing the public’s health and we are excited to continue and deepen this work. The Healthiest State Summit will build on the foundation of the Prevention Conference, which set the stage for cross-cutting skill development of public health leaders and coalitions. The Healthiest State Summit also aims to advance shared action on conditions that advance health equity and community well-being. Through engaging networks, coalitions, and multi-stakeholder partnerships, the Healthiest State Summit will not focus on any particular health issue, but will: 

  • Convene and support diverse leaders in setting and taking action on a common agenda to align and catalyze efforts (e.g. policy agenda, funder agenda, shared metrics); 
  • Provide capacity building and support to address cross-cutting needs, challenges and opportunities; and 
  • Advance a shared narrative that expands the understanding of what shapes health and equity.
