Who should attend?

Movement Makers is designed for leaders in the active living movement who want to change people’s health outcomes through programs, policy changes, and infrastructure improvements. Content at the conference will go beyond the academic studies and will help community health advocates who are interested in making a lasting difference through increased physical activity for real people at area schools, workplaces, and the community at large. As our health care system continues to focus a growing mountain of funds to treat illness, a chorus of preventive health-oriented organizations are uniting around phyiscal activity promotions to stem the flow of chronically ill patients who have illnesses related to inactive lifestyles. Movement Makers exists to bring this chorus together to share and learn from each other.

Who are the speakers?

Engaging and informative speakers will share what they have learned from supporting active living initiatives. You’ll hear stories about policies changed, advocacy wins, innovative school initiatives, and corporate wellness efforts. The design of active communities and policy and development guidelines will be reviewed. Don’t expect to sit in a room staring at power points all day, though! Our keynote sessions will feature conversational fireside chats, and our speakers will provide dynamic content to keep you engaged during the How-To Breakout Sessions. Head to our Speakers page to learn more about the experts who are coming to share their stories at Movement Makers.
