Presented by Live Well Omaha and the WELCOM, this year’s conference hosts important conversations about community health and wellness in workplace culture around the summit’s organizing theme. The event provides individuals and organizations a chance to engage in a conversation around issues that affect employee health, worksite wellness programs, and the entire community.

“We now have more reasons than ever to establish a community-wide movement and investment in creating a new definition of health,” said Anne Meysenburg, executive director for Live Well Omaha. “Omaha is a transformational community - and we’re looking for individuals and organizations to join us in the conversation and work.”

The summit is attended by decision makers from government, business, health institutions, and community based organizations, who participate in strategic dialogue about how to continue to move the dial on community and corporate health.
