The “Health Dunn Right” symposium was an inaugural gathering to present the findings of the 2019 Dunn County Community Health Needs Assessment and to develop a County Health Improvement Plan for top local health priorities. The County Health Improvement Plan will provide a framework for the “Health Dunn Right” coalition and the collective action of all partners in the County for the next three years. This gathering builds on the Health Coalition’s previous work. 

The event was free of charge to participants thanks to a generous donation by the Community Foundation of Dunn County and the University of Wisconsin – Stout.

There were sessions to strengthen Coalition capacity in Dunn County. Participants learned more about how to build community leadership, develop active participation skills, and to energize collective action. The CHIP will guide the Health Dunn Right Coalition and the next three years of collective action to improve the health of the people in our community.

The symposium will also strengthen capacity in the County by providing training to build leadership and active participation skills, and to energize collective action. This gathering was intended for all people who have an interest in the wellbeing of the citizens of Dunn County. That includes non-profit and government leaders, local business owners, elected officials, leaders from the faith community, retirees, students, and anyone who has a perspective they wish to contribute.

Presented by Health Dunn Right Coalition Partners

The symposium was hosted by leading partners from the “Health Dunn Right” coalition, including the Community Foundation of Dunn County, the Dunn County Health Department, Mayo Clinic Health System, and the University of Wisconsin – Stout.
