2018 Buckeye Summit

CREATING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES

Focusing on preventive care

Prevention takes many forms. It’s managing stress at home and in the workplace and ensuring access to clean, safe resources around the globe. Whatever prevention looks like in your community, we can work to identify health problems early.

You’ll come away from the Buckeye Summit understanding more about the environmental, behavioral and communal factors that prevent some members of your community from receiving the care they need.

The best part? You’ll leave the Buckeye Summit armed with the tools and ideas to support your own community. Together, we can make a difference.

"Putting Band-aids on broken problems has failed repeatedly for decades. We have no choice but to start to do the right thing now."
