Are you working for a healthier West Virginia?  This conference is for you! 

Two idea-packed, inspiring days with like-minded people!  Meet people from all over the state who are doing great things in their communities.  Trade ideas - Join forces - Get inspired - Learn - Plan next steps - Help build a statewide movement!

A feast of do-able ideas!  Minigrants to make your idea happen!

  • Forty workshops!  From farmers markets and school gardens to bicycling and running programs to school-based health centers and parks, we’ve got great workshop leaders who really know their stuff! (2017 list coming in March.)
  • Affordable cost!  WV Wesleyan is giving us a very reasonable price, and workshop leaders are donating time, so we can keep conference costs down. SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE!
  • Minigrant program!  If you come to the conference, you can get grants to help make your healthier-community idea happen!  If three or more people from your community attend and plan as a team, you can apply. More details here.
