New Wisconsin HIA-HiAP Network!

We are excited to announce the creation of the Wisconsin HIA-HiAP Network! This new Network replaces the former WPHA HIA-HiAP Section (created in 2010), and will operate independently. The WPHA HIA-HiAP Section has grown extensively over the past several years, and now includes over 200 individual professionals – with a mixture of many professions and members from various professional organizations. The Section’s Leaders have been working hard to ensure the services the section has provided in the past will remain available to all its various members, including WPHA members and members of the Wisconsin Public Health and Planning Collaborative (WPHPC). To continue doing this important work in a sustainable way, the WPHA Board and Section leaders have made the decision to move the Network outside of WPHA to ensure that cross sector activities and collaboration continues. The Network will continue striving to be a leader in advancing the Health in All Policies Concept across Wisconsin, through information sharing, policy development, and trainings.  The Network’s goal is to build a true health in all policies platform across the state that encourages cross-sector collaboration and partnerships to safeguard the health of all of Wisconsin’s populations.

 

As agreed upon by the WPHA board of representatives, WPHA will maintain a dedicated page on the WPHA website that includes news, information and archived webinars; commitment to at least one HIA-HiAP webinar each year for WPHA members and non-members; and support the appointment of a the HIA-HiAP Network leader as a WPHA organizational representative. We look forward to working together to advance WPHA’s long term legislative priority –Infusing health in policy decision-making, with the ultimate goal of a “health in all policies” approach in Wisconsin.

 

The Network’s future webinars and newsletters will remain available to all its members, including WPHA and WPHPC members. WPHA remains dedicated to sponsoring one of the Network’s quarterly webinars as well as one of its HIA training, annually, at the WPHA/WALHDAB conference.

 

WPHA thanks the members who provided leadership and vision to the Section over the past 7 years – especially Paula Tran Inzeo, Colleen Moran, Denise Attard Sacco and Lindsay Menard. WPHA looks forward to continued work with the Network.  Members interested in learning more about the Network are encouraged to sign-up for the Network listserv by contacting Lindsay Menard, Communications Lead at LMenard@lacrossecounty.org
