About the Conference
The Montana Healthy Communities Conference April 28-30, 2020 in Helena will be the first statewide gathering to intentionally connect the healthcare and public health fields with the economic development, planning, research, local government, business, historic preservation and community development fields.

We will spend over 2 hours doing real strategic planning that will directly improve the work that you do with your partners and community. This isn’t abstract training; it is true strategic consulting at scale. Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of their current state, the resources at their disposal, vision for the future, and critical next steps. This is money in the bank for your community.

Who Should Attend & Why
“Bridging the gap” will intentionally connect the healthcare and public health fields with professionals in economic development, research, planning, local government, business, historic preservation and community development.

You and your community will walk away with a vision and plan for the future including how to leverage funds, skills and expertise for maximum impact.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to invite others from their community—especially those outside of your industry or community sector. For example, if you work in public health, encourage your local clerk, commissioner, planner, engineer, business leader, historian, developer and legislator to attend (we have scholarships for all elected officials and clerks!). If you need assistance identifying cross-sector associates, email [email protected]

We encourage you to submit a poster presentation highlighting a successful project, initiative or research in your community.
