Community Health Expertise in the Fox Valley:
How are Local Groups Sharing What They Know?

Individuals and groups work every day to improve the health of their communities. This work occurs across many different areas (such as aging, obesity prevention, substance use), and many different  types of actors (public, non-profit, private sector, academic). However, all these groups share a common thread: they build a vital base of knowledge and expertise thourgh their interactions with their clients, partners, and others.

Join us to hear howgroups working to improve the health of the Fox Cities to address the following questions:

How is your organization learning?
How is your organization teaching?
What are ways your group and others can do this most effectively? 

The program will be co-hosted by
State Representatives Dave Murphy, Mike Rohrkaste, and Amanda Stuck,
with a panel featuring perspectives from:
