This year’s Summit will be a lively and engaging experience that will explore all facets of “community” invested in family strengthening and community-building throughout New Hampshire. Our day will begin with a presentation from Dr. Wendy Ellis, assistant professor, and director of the Center for Community Resilience at the Milken Institute School of Public Health, at George Washington University. It will be followed by a plenary discussion led by Dr. Ellis, and a series of interactive discussions, activities, and workshops that will show attendees how they can improve the health of their communities.

Summit Objectives
