Our annual summit gathers 100+ health education specialists, health communicators, K-12 health teachers, behavioral scientists, health professionals, university faculty and students from around the state to exchange information and create a healthier Minnesota through effective public health education practice. This year’s theme is What the Health?: Understanding Disease, Diversity and Disparities. Our speakers will share their expertise in disease, diversity and disparity-related topics related to health theories, evaluation and research tools, show project examples and share applicable ideas for health communicators, educators, professionals and advocates to utilize in their programming and project efforts.

Conference Objectives:

  • Build on the theory, roots, and philosophies of health education with new insights that address disease, diversity, and disparities.
  • Develop new knowledge and skills related to active community needs assessment and participatory research methodology to identify, represent, and enhance community health and well-being.
  • Expand professional health networks – including people, organizations, and resources to enhance and energize your health education planning, intervention, research and evaluation.


Those who are interested in improving the health of Minnesota communities are welcome to attend.
