CHEF Leadership Camp Spokane, WA 2014

CHEF Leadership Camp

We're proud to have supported the CHEF Leadership Camp in Spokane, WA for the last 6 years! The camp gives local youth a chance to start thinking about their futures while also having fun and connecting to others their own age. 


From the article: "The CHEF Leadership Camp held its sixth spring break camp at the Northeast Community Center April 7–11. The camp, which is funded by the Comprehensive Health Education Foundation (CHEF) in Seattle gives local youngsters a chance to start thinking about their futures while also having fun playing sports and games."

Year in Review: 2014

2014 has been a big year for Healthy Gen. We changed our name. Our two-day conference, Coalescing for Change: Community-Based Health Solutions, welcomed speakers like Tina Rosenberg, Ron Sims, Governor Jay Inslee, Howard Friedman, Michael Ungar, Colleen Kraft, Deborah Gray, and over 300 partners, community-members and other attendees. We updated our Theory of Change, highlighting our strategies towards achieving greater health equity in Washington State.

We also continued our core work to ACTIVATE, elevate and inform community voice, ACCELERATE the strength of community wisdom through shared learning and hope-filled action, and thereby TRANSFORM the community conditions for health. We are proud and excited to carry forward this work into 2015 through our programs and partnerships, including the newly named, Learning Institute, as well as, the Prevention Alliance, the Healthy Living Collaborative (HLC) of SW Washington, the Salishan Community Health Advocates (CHAs), Childhood Obesity Prevention Coalition, and the Washington State Public Health Association among others.

We thank all of our partners, supporters and friends for the accomplishments of this year and we look forward to expanding and deepening this circle in the work to come. 

Featured Keynote - Tina Rosenberg

Harnessing Peer Pressure for Behavior Change

We are thrilled to announce Tina Rosenberg, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, winner of the National Book Award and author of Join the Club: How Peer Influence can transform the World, as our keynote speaker Wednesday, September 17th. Join the Club has been hailed as “timely, thoughtful and important” by the New York Times and well-thumbed versions of it have been passed around the halls of Healthy Gen since its publication in 2011.

Tina Rosenberg draws on academic research and stories from her own reporting for her book and her New York Times "Fixes" column for a fresh, surprising, and inspirational talk that will transform the way you think about behavior change. Rosenberg was also the first freelance journalist to receive a MacArthur Fellowship.

Rosenberg's perspective is truly a global one. Through her speaking and writing, she displays what can be learned from the political and social experience of countries all around the world. Her other two books, Children of Cain: Violence and the Violent in Latin America and The Haunted Land: Facing Europe's Ghosts After Communism, dive into issues of global democracy, and ultimately how nations do -- and should -- deal with a repressive past. A compelling presenter, Rosenberg gives audiences the opportunity to engage with her on these issues.
