Planning for a 21st Century

 State of Wellness

Arizona faces a variety of complex environmental and social determinants of health that are resulting in an epidemic of chronic illness, growing health inequities, and rising healthcare costs.

Developing effective strategies to reverse the tide requires us to think differently about how we approach public health policy by advancing trans-disciplinary and inter-sectoral interventions.

Join us as we look, hear, and learn about successful approaches that are making a real difference across the country and at the state and local level in Arizona:

  • Learn from other cities – San Diego, Omaha and Indianapolis - that have successfully connected multi-sector partners to take action toward improving the health of their residents, lessons learned and how they measure results.
  • Hear about the Healthy Communities in Arizona initiative being championed by Vitalyst Health Foundation in 2017 and how you can be a part of this important work. 
  • Look through the cross-cutting lens as Arizona Department of Health Services and three county health departments (Maricopa County, Yavapai County and Yuma County) discuss their cross-cutting strategies and how they fit into the bigger picture of improving health in Arizona.

AzPHA Annual Meeting – Over lunch we will conduct a brief business meeting for the Arizona Public Health Association, the independent voice of public health in Arizona. At the meeting, we will be unveiling our new initiatives that will add greater value to our members.

Awards Ceremony – Join us to celebrate and honor individuals and organizations who have made outstanding and significant contributions to public health in Arizona. | *To follow after Panel 3 session, and lead into networking reception*

Open Networking Reception – Immediately following the Conference program, join your colleagues from across the state for a hosted reception to continue the networking in a less formal setting.

Please join us for this great opportunity to network with your peers, participate in the conversation and ultimately promote the important work of public health in Arizona!
