Description

LiveWell Colorado's 2018 HEAL Summit is taking place November 29 - 30, 2018, at DoubleTree Stapleton North.

LiveWell Colorado’s HEAL Summit is the premier annual convening that brings together Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) leaders from throughout the state of Colorado and beyond. The purpose of the Summit is to share expertise and provide learning and practical experience for those focused on improving access to healthy living in Colorado. A wide range of participants, including leaders from municipalities, public health, non-profits, the private sector, and the philanthropic community gather to share expertise, challenges and exciting new developments regarding HEAL. Join us to learn how your community can successfully advance and implement policies and environmental changes that will increase access to physical activity, healthy food, and a healthy workplace. We hope to see you there!
