2019 Conference Theme, Objectives and Definitions:

Building Bridges
Policy, Systems, Environment:  Change in Action 

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 and innovative practices to optimize health. Without addressing the broader structural and systemic barriers to health, we risk missing opportunities 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.

  • Determine our role in changing policies at multiple levels to eliminate barriers and create opportunities for optimal health.
    • Policy: Initiatives that create or amend laws, ordinances, resolutions, mandates, regulations, or rules.
  • Analyze how systems affect health and examine our role in fostering system changes to achieve health equity. 
    • Systems: Initiatives that impact all elements of an organization, institution, or system 
  • Expand our role in advancing changes to the economic, social and physical environment to promote health.
    • Environment: Initiatives that involve physical or material changes to the economic, social, or physical environment
