The Healthiest State Initiative holds several events throughout the year to engage community contributors and leaders in constructive conversation to improve the health and well-being of Iowans. See what we’re up to:
Join us for the 2017 Annual Conference on May 2, 2017 in Ames!
If your own event is aimed at improving the health and well-being of Iowans in your community, apply to use our seal of approval. We'll promote your event on the Healthiest State Initiative social media outlets, just as long as you promote the Healthiest State Initiative and its activities!
THANK YOU for joining us for the Healthiest State Initiative's Bringing It Home event to celebrate the first five years and learn about Healthiest State 2.0. Copies of the presentations are available for download on this page.
In 2011, the Healthiest State Initiative kicked off our effort to become the healthiest state in the nation with the Start Somewhere Walk. Save the date for the 7th annual walk on Wednesday, October 4, 2017!
