SC’s Culture of Health: Our Sector’s Responsibility

Everyone deserves to live the healthiest life possible. However, our health and well-being can be greatly influenced by complex social factors such as where we live, and the strength of our families and communities. But despite knowing this, positive change is not occurring at a promising pace. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Culture of Health Action Framework aims to set a national agenda to improve health, well-being, and equity. Fostering cross-sector collaboration to improve well-being is a core element of the Framework.

Monica Hobbs Vinluan will help us understand why and how each and every nonprofit (especially those working in non-healthcare fields) can help improve well-being by developing deep partnerships, investing in relationships, and supporting policies to promote collaboration.

To help us all think through what we’ve just heard, this opening plenary session will include round-table discussions with philanthropic leaders from around the state facilitated by Terri Theisen. Come ready to think big.
