2013 Health Summit- Lancaster 5.23.13
Transforming Health | 05.20.13
In 2012, Lancaster County learned that key community health issues remain chronic. Obesity, smoking and access to preventive services are areas in which we need to do better. Why are these issues so difficult to address? What are the root causes and what have other communities, employers and social service agencies done to succeed in making positive change?
The 2013 Health Summit will share ideas, methodologies, products, and services that you can actually use. These techniques in turn will have a direct impact on your organization’s health and productivity, as well as link directly back to the larger community health goals. Come see what we can do together that individually is impractical.

Prevention Institutebrings cutting-edge research, practice, and analysis to today's pressing health and safety concerns. Determined to achieve health and safety for all, to improve community environments equitably, and to serve as a focal point for primary prevention practice, the Institute asks what can be done in the first place, before people get sick or injured.
Prevention Institute has inspired a broad, comprehensive approach to systematizing prevention as a distinct discipline—not simply an educational message. It infuses a community and policy orientation into prevention practices, and it emphasizes the importance of quality prevention strategies—ones that are well designed, achieve far-reaching outcomes
Prevention Institute was founded in 1997 to serve as a focal point for primary prevention practice—promoting policies, organizational practices, and collaborative efforts that improve health and quality of life. As a national non-profit organization, the Institute is committed to preventing illness and injury, to fostering health and social equity, and to building momentum for community prevention as an integral component of a quality health system. Prevention Institute synthesizes research and practice; develops prevention tools and frameworks; helps design and guide interdisciplinary partnerships; and conducts training and strategic consultation with government, foundations, and community-based organizations nationwide and internationally.
