"Cultivating Wellbring in our Lives and Communities" - Mary Jo Kreitzer, PhD, RN, FAAN, Director of the Center for Spirituality & Healing, University of Minnesota.

While providing access to health care and fixing a system that is badly broken are laudable goals, there is a growing recognition that a more fundamental and sustainable strategy is to support people and communities in cultivating wellbeing. Dr. Kreitzer will discuss the determinants of wellbeing and highlight strategies that lead to human flourishing. She will also discuss why empowering people and communities to assume more personal responsibility for their health and wellbeing is becoming an economic imperative for the nation.
