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.
