Healthy Aging Summit - 2018

Healthy Aging Summit Registration Opens in Early April 2018!

Join us for the 2018 Healthy Aging Summit - June 7-8, 2018 at the Glacier Canyon Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells.  Sponsored by the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging, the Healthy Aging Summit is a 2-day event dedicated to learning, networking, training, and collaborating -- all in the pursuit of reaching new heights as professionals and leaders in the healthy aging movement.  

Who's going to the Summit?
The event is designed for healthy promotion program leaders, coordinators, and volunteers; academic researchers and community partners; professionals from aging offices, ADRCs, senior centers, independent living centers, public health departments, and health care systems — and anyone with an interest in promoting healthy aging in their community. Come get new ideas and fresh perspectives to help you improve the health and wellness of your community.  And — most importantly — connect with friends and colleagues who share your vision for healthier aging in Wisconsin.

Announcing - Keynote speaker Dr. Aaron Leppin








Dr. Leppin is a patient, physician, and implementation scientist in the Division of Health Care and Policy Research at Mayo Clinic and a Health and Aging Policy Fellow with the Minnesota Board on Aging. His research focuses on developing systems-based approaches to enhancing communities’ capacity to deliver evidence-based health promotion programs.

From Sick Care to Well Care:
A Policy Priority for an Aging Society

American communities are transforming, spurred by the aging of the Baby Boomer generation. Recognizing, understanding, and responding to the unique opportunities presented by this new societal landscape will determine how well older adults maintain their health and independence and thrive in their homes and communities. Ensuring the health and wellness of people as they age will require a shift in thinking and new knowledge about the roles communities can and should play to reliably contribute to health.

Dr. Leppin will discuss the systems that generate this knowledge and how they can be used to drive change through the sustainable implementation of evidence-based health promotion programs.
