Try This WV

2018 Conference

Are you working for a healthier WV?  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! (2018 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.
  • Team building! Come with others from your community iso you can brainstorm and plan in a stimulating, idea-filled atmosphere.
  • Youth activities!  Young people from 14 - 18 are encouraged to attend and participate in our youth track. Younger children must be accompanied at all times by parents.
  • Try This for Healthcare Professionals! Thursday, June 14, the day before the Try This conference, there will be a special day (with 6 CEUs) full of ideas and presentations by WV healthcare professionals who are prescribing prevention! More info, click here!

Register now to lock in the $75 early bird rate. It will bump up to $100 in February, then $150 in mid-March

If you know you're coming ... but your team isn't yet together ... or you're waiting for approval from your employer ... or there's a holdup of some sort ... go ahead and register and mark "pay by check," and you'll get the lower rate when you do pay.

We must receive your payment by June 1st, whatever rate you have! Last year, we sold out, but some people who hadn't paid yet didn't come.  We'd like to get bottoms in those seats!

Register Now!
