2022 CHP Summit Graphic


Kansas Community Health Promotion Summit

January 25 & 27, 2022

Virtual Conference

Power of Resilience: Focused. Connected. Motivated.


Thank you for attending!

We all face challenges professionally and personally, but it is our resilience that helps us through. We've adapted and withstood adversity more than we thought possible. Thank you for joining us January 25 & 27, 2022, for the Community Health Promotion Summit: Power of Resilience as we get focused, connected and motivated to take on the new year.

Day 1 of this year's Summit was built specifically for CDRR grantees. Grantees dove into topics such as effective application writing, data evaluation, and communication.

Day 2 featured a rousing keynote by Adrion Roberson, a pastor and teacher for the Kansas Leadership Center, followed by several dynamic breakouts focused on improving Kansans' health, and finished with the annual Kansas Governor's Council on Fitness Health Champion Awards.
