“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

-Margaret Mead

Americans have witnessed the effects of a health care system with worsening problems. Even with the passage of the most extensive health reform since Medicare (The Affordable Health Care Act) in 2010, we are confronted with burgeoning problems in our health care system including unsustainable high costs of care, too many health errors, inadequate access to care, significant disparities in health care outcomes, and inadequate focus on prevention and primary health care.

The remedy for many health care system problems is a course correction directed by new or revised policy. Concerned community members and health care workers can influence critical and needed changes in the health system and society through being involved in policy making and political action.

This summit will focus on the importance of being involved citizens in our political process, inspire us to think about political involvement and advocacy as an essential part of our work in health care and hopefully breathe new life into what it means to be a democratic citizen-compassionate, thoughtful, realistic and accountable.

The summit will take place in the Predolin Humanities Center on the Edgewood College campus. Campus Map

Advanced registration is encouraged and food will be provided. The Third Annual Innovation in Healthcare Summit is co-hosted by Edgewood College and Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin as part of the $1,000,000 gift to Edgewood College to engage and enlist Edgewood nursing students and graduates in innovative and progressive care delivery. 

 This event is free and open to the public. Edgewood College faculty, staff, students and GHC-SCW employees and members are particularly encouraged to attend.
