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.
