About the event
The Omaha Health Summit, sponsored by WELLCOM and Live Well Omaha, is a catalyst event that aims to educate and mobilize area professionals, students, business owners, and faith community, health system, insurance company, non-profit and governmental leaders to use their gifts to cultivate a healthier community. This year, the theme “Changemakers” focuses on the connection between health and the “social determinants” or living conditions that impact health. Attendees will leave the summit with national best practices and a toolkit for action.
