HEAL Summit 2017 Call for Presentations

LiveWell Colorado is currently accepting session proposals for the 2017 HEAL Summit to be held November 30 and December 1, 2017, in Denver. LiveWell Colorado invites you to submit a proposal for the Summit to showcase your work to others throughout the state. Individuals who are interested in presenting are invited to submit an online proposal by Friday, Aug. 4.

LiveWell Colorado’s HEAL Summit is the premier annual convening that brings together Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) leaders from throughout the state of Colorado and beyond. The purpose of the Summit is to share expertise and provide learning and practical experience for those focused on improving access to healthy living in Colorado. A wide range of participants, including leaders from municipalities, public health, non-profits, the private sector, and the philanthropic community gather to share expertise, challenges and exciting new developments regarding HEAL. The strength of the annual event lies in the powerful breakout sessions that are provided, allowing participants to meet and learn from each other.

Sessions are 90 minutes in length. We strongly encourage proposals from community members and leaders of color, which focus on innovative and impactful ways in which equitable access to healthy eating and active living has been achieved in their communities. Sessions that address social determinants of health and health equity are desired. Priority will be given to sessions that are interactive and provide an opportunity for dialogue with the audience.

Attendees of the HEAL Summit work for municipalities, public health departments, non-profits and community coalitions throughout Colorado. Many have worked to address health and equity in communities. Presentations should focus less on basic overviews of a topic and focus more on examining the topic or case study in more detail.

Presentation Selections – Proposals will be selected on August 7, 2017, and notifications will be sent shortly thereafter.
