The theme of our 7th Annual Health Policy Summit is Embracing a Culture of Health and Wellness
Health, including wellness is one of life’s most important assets. It’s more than just the absence of physical disease; but also includes many dimensions such as social, emotional, and spiritual. The 7th Annual St. Clair County Health Policy Summit will explore implications of shifting our perspective from treatment to prevention – focusing on the new reality. This new reality would be undergirded by shared values and commitment to health for all regardless of age, race, neighborhood, or economic circumstances. Embracing a culture of health and wellness necessitates authentic collaboration from policy-makers, civic leaders, educators, employers, and residents. All of these key players should plan to attend this year’s Health Policy Summit, to learn more about the Culture of Health and Wellness and begin this important conversation.
