Thank You, Summit Attendees

Thank you for attending the 2007 National Prevention and Health Promotion Summit from November 27-29, 2007. More than 1,100 attendees from all levels of the public and private sectors arrived in Washington, D.C.

With presentations from First Lady Laura Bush, futurist Dr. Leland Kaiser and many others, the summit’s presenters demonstrated a high level of commitment to fostering a culture of wellness that will help reduce the disease burden and economic impact of some of the nation’s leading causes of death and disability. The summit closed with a special presentation produced by Fred Friendly Seminars that featured a riveting debate about the real-world experiences of two girls affected by obesity and diabetes.

We hope you had an enjoyable time at the summit. We recognize that there is always room for improvement, and we welcome your feedback and evaluations on how we can make next year’s conference even better. Please e-mail suggestions to Summit Manager at

Summit Date and Location

Summit Goal Statement

The goal of the 2007 National Health Promotion Summit is to create a culture of wellness by:

  • Facilitating the development of a shared public health agenda focused on prevention to guide the work of professionals at the federal, state, territory, tribal and community levels;
  • Exploring innovations in science and policy that support engaging in regular physical activity, eating a healthy diet, taking advantage of appropriate medical screenings, making healthy choices to avoid risky behaviors, and other healthy practices;
  • Fostering multidisciplinary approaches to put prevention principles into practice;
  • Investigating how changes in health literacy, culture, communications and technology challenge how we reach, engage, educate and influence target audiences in their health and lifestyle decisions.

Summit Objectives

By the end of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Describe at least two federal, state, territorial, tribal or local efforts to promote health or prevent disease and disability in the community;
  • Discuss at least two collaborative practices to support prevention science, policies, programs, or campaigns such as those related to the Healthier US pillars (physical activity, healthy diet, medical screenings, healthy choices) or such as preconception care, adolescent health, and disability prevention;
  • Explain at least two prevention strategies that use multidisciplinary approaches for addressing wellness issues facing communities; and
  • Describe at least two examples of how health literacy principles or media/technology are increasing communication effectiveness (i.e., message development, reach, cultural relevance, appeal, distribution channels, etc).
