2023 Health Summit

Join The Health Collaborative for a morning of learning, connection, reflection, and celebration!


As our first in-person Health Summit in more than two years, we are looking forward to a long-overdue celebration! Despite the many challenges of the last few years, together we have made real progress advancing health and wellbeing in the Dan River Region. Our chapters and task forces are bringing people together across sectors and communities and working to create transformational change. We are excited to share their work and its impacts on our region.

We are also looking forward to releasing our new Health for All Action Plan, co-created with you, our community partners after more than a year of data review, courageous conversations, extensive engagement and collaboration. You will have the opportunity to shape our next steps by prioritizing the plan’s strategies that will have the greatest impact in your community.

We know that good things happen when we bring people together in collaboration. Whether you are brand new to The Health Collaborative or have been with us since day one, we believe this will be a meaningful experience for all. Please join us as we celebrate our shared success and build momentum for the work ahead.
