2017 Healthy Communities Conference
There is more to health than health care. Affordable housing, fresh produce, safe places to exercise, quality early child care, and good jobs are all critically important when it comes to the health of Montana's residents.
Montana Healthy Communities Conference: Building on What Works
The conference is a 1.5 day conference that will bring together community development and health leaders from across the state to explore the future of community health improvement.
The conference kicks off on Wednesday, November 1, with a networking reception, What Works in Montana poster showcase, and optional pre-conference session. Thursday, November 2, includes a full day of sessions featuring national and local speakers, What Works in Montana poster recognition, and additional networking opportunities.
Thank you Senator Tester for your support of the 2017 Montana Healthy Communities Conference!
