Igniting Conversations

For many decades, the prevailing view has been that health is the product of the doctor’s office or public health nurse.

Increasingly, people are understanding that healthier communities are created through the work of many diverse disciplines and stakeholders.


By bringing different disciplines together to share their perspectives, skills, knowledge and insights in focused conversations, the Center for Prevention helps develop a broader group of stakeholders who can make unique contributions to improving the health of Minnesotans.  

By strengthening their connections, we create opportunities for collective impact.  

See below to learn about the statewide efforts the Center for Prevention has supported to broaden and deepen conversations around health.
