Working Toward a
Wild, Wonderful and Healthy West Virginia


Health means much more than simply not being sick. To improve West Virginia’s health statistics, we must break down silos that separate improving health from the work of education, business, transportation, economic development, government and other historically “non-health” sectors. Health care organizations and public health must join with schools, faith-based organizations, businesses, economic development groups, and other community partners to make the “healthy choice the easy choice” in communities throughout West Virginia.  Each sector must recognize their unique contributions to community well-being and align their resources accordingly—working as a cohesive whole.

During the 2018 Forum leaders from business, education, economic development, government and other sectors have been invited to join health care leaders from throughout West Virginia to discuss how best to address health disparities in each county with the goal of improving the ability of rural communities throughout West Virginia to attract economic development opportunities.

Please join us for the 2018 WV Governance and Leadership Forum to begin work in your community that will help us achieve our vision for a Wild, Wonderful and Healthy West Virginia.
