2016 Edge of Amazing conference connects people, ideas and resources

Approximately 400 people from organizations, non-profits and companies across Snohomish County and beyond packed the Tulalip Resort on Sept. 9 for the second At the Edge of Amazing health summit -- Connecting Neighborhood to Nation to Improve Community and Population Health.

The event got off to a strong start with Drs. Patrick O’Carroll and Karen DeSalvo who shared a national perspective on healthcare issues, while praising and encouraging the ambitious health and well-being initiatives underway right here in Snohomish County.

Keynote speakers Dr. Fania Davis (restorative justice expert) and Dr. Richard Jackson (urban planning expert) inspired and challenged the audience to reflect on their views of relationships and social justice, and healthy community planning, respectively.

And summit attendees chose from a robust lineup of breakout sessions, including: the full employer costs of health, preparing for affordable housing needs, paying for value to improve population health, and a look at the local multi-modal movement.

Congratulations to our 2016 ChangeMaker recipients Miriam Vargas (individual winner), and Beck’s Place of Monroe (organization winner)!

A special thanks to our partners, the Snohomish County Health Leadership Coalition and Healthier Washington for making this event possible, and to the Tulalip Tribes for their generosity as our title sponsor.

Save the date for the third annual At the Edge of Amazing health summit: Sept. 19, 2017 at the Lynnwood Convention Center.
