2018 Buckeye Summit

CREATING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES

Building a culture of well-being

Well-being is an ongoing journey. At the Buckeye Summit, we’ll come together to encourage well-being — in ourselves, in our homes and in our broader communities.

Throughout the summit, you’ll connect with wellness professionals to learn about tools that combat the negative effects of stress. You’ll find out how mindfulness meditation could reduce cognitive decline in older adults. You’ll discover how innovative programming targets nutrition, physical activity and emotional needs to produce lasting positive benefits in teenagers. And you’ll discover how instilling health and wellness in our children can carry results through to the next generation.

Together, we can create a culture of well-being.

"There is great opportunity for improvement by building cultures of well-being."

Healthy, happy teens

Being a teenager is no easy task, but this innovative program has helped high school students turn negative beliefs into positive ones, an Ohio State researcher says.

As a land-grant university with extension offices in all 88 Ohio counties, Ohio State is committed to making a difference in enhancing health and well-being within our state and across the nation. At the Buckeye Summit, we invite you to help us create new ways to make an impact. You’ll gain the confidence and the tools to make a difference in your community.
