2022 Health Summit

Join us on September 14th, 2022 for the Lancaster Health Summit. Held this year at Spooky Nook Sports, the Health Summit is a partnership between the Central Penn Business Group on Health and LiveWell Lancaster. It is designed to bring together the business community and other community partners to promote better health in our community. Each year, we focus on a different aspect of health and tie the issue to community resources available to affect change.

This year, the Health Summit will focus on the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) reports from area health systems. In addition to a panel featuring representative from each health system, we will hold two breakout sessions that address the findings of the CHNAs.

This event also features exhibitor opportunities for those organizations looking to connect with employers and the social services community in our region.
