ACHD Wellness Summit: Healthy You: Healthy Community!

Register Today! 

On July 13, 2017 the Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD), in collaboration with the Stanford Health Improvement Program and Well for Life program at Stanford University, is hosting a one-day wellness summit to provide Healthcare Districts and their Community Partners with valuable wellness tools and inspiration for embracing existing programs and envisioning new initiatives.

Your attendance at our Wellness Summit will assist you and your colleagues in creating an action plan to implement healthy initiatives at your District and throughout your communities.

The Stanford Health Improvement Program (HIP), more popularly referred to as HIP, began in 1983 at the Stanford Prevention Research Center (SPRC). The Center was a pioneer in developing effective methods of health education and health promotion, including those for community-wide application.

The WELL for Life Initiative is a cooperative effort comprising of world-renowned researchers from the Stanford Prevention Research Center, a team of dedicated WELL staff, an eminent Advisory Board, collaborative community partners and engaged citizen scientists - all of whom are working together to build the scientific evidence about well-being. WELL for Life strives to engage thousands of participants from various parts of the world to help improve the understanding of the key determinants of well-being.

Together, ACHD and our Stanford collaborators will present valuable wellness tools and initiatives that will allow Districts to continue to make strides in improving the overall community well-being.
