Make plans to join public health professionals from around the state at the 2019 Public Health Conference.

Today in Wisconsin and across the country, so much seems to be dividing us, from political parties to institutional racism to generational differences to geography. In public health, we also see a gap between direct services and the policies, systems, and environments that profoundly impact our ability to deliver effective programs and engage in evidence-based as well as innovative practices to optimize health. Without addressing the broader structural and systemic barriers to health, we risk leaving opportunities on the table to better serve our local communities, our state, and beyond. By building bridges among ourselves as public health professionals and across our work at all levels and throughout all sectors that impact health, we will increase our capacity to create sustainable and systematic changes to further improve health outcomes now and for years to come.

Conference Objectives:
• Determine our role in changing policies at multiple levels to eliminate barriers and create opportunities for optimal health.
• Analyze how systems affect health and examine our role in fostering system changes to achieve health equity.
• Expand our role in advancing changes to the economic, social and physical environment to promote health.

NEW THIS YEAR - Public Affairs Legislative Priority Sessions

The Joint WPHA-WALHDAB Public Affairs Committee is pleased to be offering a series of sessions at the 2019 Annual Conference to share more in-depth information on our new legislative priorities.  Each session will focus on one of our 2019-2020 priority areas.  These sessions will take the place of the previously held general town hall and will provide all with an opportunity to dive deeper into each specific priority area.  

Public Affairs Legislative Priority Session Objectives:

1. Describe the justification used to support making this public health issue one of WPHA and WALHDAB’s legislative priorities for the current legislative session.
2. Identify and connect with partners, organizations and individuals also working to advance this legislative priority.
3. Recognize how public health professionals can have a positive influence on moving this priority forward using the legislative skill learned in this session.
