Sponsored by the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging, Base Camp is a 1-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. Make the trek to Stevens Point where you'll learn from experts, sharpen fundamental skills, and aim your sights on inspiring new ideas.
For everyone who joined us for the Healthy Aging Summit in the past — don’t worry. The full 2-day Summit will be back in 2018! This year we’ve distilled the Summit into a one-day event — Healthy Aging Base Camp — focusing on topics and workshops you’ve told us will make the biggest difference in building your evidence-based health promotion programming.
Got a professional — or personal — stake in healthy aging? Base Camp is for you! The event is specifically designed for healthy aging 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 — anyone with an interest in promoting healthy aging. 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.
