Conversations with Scientists logo

Over the last few days, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Wisconsin and its impact on meetings and events. In keeping with guidelines from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Medical College of Wisconsin for in-person events, we have decided to postpone the upcoming Conversations with Scientists learning series to a later date in fall 2020.

We made this decision with the health of our attendees and speakers in mind. While the date has not yet been determined, we promise to keep you informed so you can be the first to know when new dates are announced.

Thank you for your understanding. We hope you will join us this fall to hear from our speakers on this important topic of mental health.

AHW was selected to discuss our philanthropic support and partnership model for collective impact efforts

In November, AHW staff participated in a national webinar to share details about our Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative, an eight-year, $20 million commitment to effect change on mental and behavioral health outcomes in 10 Wisconsin communities.

The webinar, “Funding the Long Game in Collective Impact,” features Christina Ellis, AHW program director for community initiatives, Tim Meister, AHW program manager, and Paul Schmitz, senior advisor to the Collective Impact Forum and CEO of Leading Inside Out.
