Viterbo University Fine Arts Center, La Crosse, WI

Every day across Wisconsin, groups in the public, private, and academic sectors work to improve the health of their communities in areas such as aging, obesity prevention, and substance use. But no matter what area they work in, these groups all share a common thread: they build a vital base of local knowledge and expertise through their work with their clients, partners, and others.

Join us for the second annual program in the “local learning” series from the Evidence-Based Health Policy Project at the UW-Madison Population Health Institute (the first took place in the Fox Valley in 2017), where you will hear more about the work of several organizations working to improve health in La Crosse, and find out how they address the following questions:  

How is your organization learning from others?
How is your organization teaching others?
What are ways do this most effectively? 

The program will be co-hosted by
State Senator Jennifer Shilling and State Representatives
Jill Billings, Steve Doyle, and Nancy VanderMeer
with a panel featuring perspectives from:

Great Rivers United Way

La Crosse County Heroin and Illicit Drug Task Force

La Crosse Medical Health Science Consortium

Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine
