Please note: In keeping with guidelines from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Medical College of Wisconsin for in-person events, the March 31 workshop has been moved to an online format. Registrants will receive additional info via email.
Join AHW for a three-part series for developing strategies to address the root causes of complex health issues.
Welcoming nonprofit, academic, health care and public health partners, these free workshops will explore a powerful framework for creating sustainable changes in health outcomes.
Participants will gain a foundation in systems change, tools that can be applied to organization- or coalition-based change efforts, and facilitated time with instructors to develop an outline for creating systems change around your most critical issues.
Attend as an individual or bring a team of colleagues and partners to launch or accelerate your work in transforming the systems that impact health programs, policies, and community outcomes.
