Jo Ann Eder and Amy Hyfield participated in the Montana Healthy Communities Conference in Helena on October 27-28, 2015.
The conference began with the premise that there is more to health than health care. Affordable housing, fresh produce, safe places to exercise, quality early child care, and good jobs are all critically important when it comes to the health of Montana’s residents.Participants learned about cross-sector approaches for building healthier communities, hear from other Montana organizations about what makes for success, and have an opportunity to discuss next steps for collaborative action in their own communities.
It was hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, the Montana Health Care Foundation, and the Montana Area Health Education Center and Office of Rural Health at Montana State University.
