HWPP is seeking community-based partnerships working to improve the health of their communities to connect with other communities across Wisconsin to share about your work, learn together, build relationships and expand and enhance both communities’ efforts to improve health. Partners are sought to serve as:
- Mentee partnerships who are forming a new multi-sector partnership or launching a new evidence-based community health improvement initiative and are looking to strengthen their partnership and organizational structure and increase local community leadership and readiness to implement, evaluate and sustain a community health improvement initiative
- Mentor partnerships who have a strong existing partnership and have successfully implemented an evidence-based community health improvement initiative and are looking to disseminate their work and explore opportunities to expand it to other Wisconsin communities

Learning opportunities engage attendees in hands-on, collaborative workshops to move from knowledge to action in a variety of capacity building areas and develop a tangible end product specific to your community health improvement initiative to enhance your impact on improving the health of your community. The events are free and open to the public, including community organizations, academicians, public health practitioners, policy makers, and the general public with an interest in improving the health of Wisconsin residents.
