Health Equity Summit:
Empower a Healthier Milwaukee



We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our rescheduled 2020 Health Equity Summit; Empower a Healthier Milwaukee due to COVID-19 related precautions and restrictions around large gatherings. We appreciate your interest and are disappointed that it will not take place as planned.
We will be holding a Health Equity Summit in the spring of 2021 that will include the previously planned conversation on empowerment along with other dynamic topics under the broader umbrella of health equity innovation. Although we plan to hold the 2021 Summit in person, we acknowledge the significant uncertainties we face and are prepared to adapt quickly if needed.
