We’re looking forward to seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and hearing from Cara McNulty, Head of Population Health at Target, and Alonzo Plough, Vice President of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Research-Evaluation-Learning and Chief Science Officer.

On top of great speakers, carefully crafted presentations, discussions, and opportunities for dialogue within communities of practice, we have still more exciting news.


Welcome to our first NNPHI Annual Conference Wellness Challenge!

The Wellness Challenge offers participants the chance to earn prizes while improving their physical, emotional and mental well-being. Participants can earn points through a variety of activities aimed at promoting the goal of wellness. We’ll use points to determine three winners.

The Wellness Challenge will start at 6:30 AM CDT on May 17 and end at 11 AM CDT on May 19. There will be a variety of activities scheduled by NNPHI that participants can attend to earn points, as well as opportunities for participants to earn points on their own. NNPHI staff will keep track of the points earned by participants through their submissions on the Crowd Compass Conference App Activity Feed. NNPHI staff will announce the challenge winners at the end of the conference during the Creating New Business Across the Network with Box Lunch Session. Points will be used to determine winners.


Winners will be announced at the closing conference session as well as the Top 5 (Members Only). Participants do not have to be present to win prizes, however the final standings will include all points earned through 11 AM CDT on May 19.
