Dear Friend -

The Louisiana Center for Health Equity, along with the Campaign for Healthcare for Everyone - Louisiana, in collaboration with the Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health, is pleased to announce the upcoming 2017 Health Summit. The Program Agenda can be viewed here.

This year’s conference theme is 2017 Health Summit: Advancing Policy for a Healthy Louisiana. The 2016 Health Summit: Creating an Agenda for a Healthy Louisiana was so well received that it is back by popular demand! This signature conference is designed to share knowledge among a broad audience as we continue working toward creating a policy agenda for healthcare and building collaborative partnerships for improving community health. This day-long summit will bring together leading voices and organizations for improving health in Louisiana.

Attendees can expect a day of focused expert panels and discussions on the evolving healthcare landscape, proven policies and models for improving health and healthcare. Everyone will come away with tools and strategies to continue community health improvements in their communities.

Our distinguished speaker lineup this year includes:

  • The Honorable John Bel Edwards, Governor of the State of Louisiana

  • The Honorable Sharon Weston-Broome, Mayor-President City of Baton Rouge/East Baton Rouge Parish
