No matter the job title, occupation or zip code – we are all Changemakers. That means that we can use our personal power, collective voice and areas of expertise to make a positive change in our neighborhoods, workplaces, cities, and counties.

Live Well Omaha and our many members and partners are passionate about health.

  • We believe in fairness across places and the value of human potential in each and every person.
  • We believe that health is the currency that makes life possible.
  • We believe that good health is also good business. When a culture of health is adopted: productivity increases, turnover decreases, and businesses grow.
  • We also believe that this work can only happen when voices across our community and across industries unite to take shared action.

We ask that you use your voice to ensure that every resident of Douglas, Sarpy, Cass and Pottawattamie Counties has equitable opportunity to live well.

 

The 2018 Changemaker Summit

Live Well Omaha is honored to serve as the facilitator and convener of a membership-driven collaborative that prioritizes health and advances shared work for the health of all. The 2018 Changemakers Summit was a launch point for a new way of collaborating, across the region for the health of all. We invite you to access the resources from the Summit below and continue to check back as the full report from the day is posted on Friday, December 8. This work is now moving from assessing needs together to addressing needs together.

 

On this journey, we will continually share what we are learning and welcome you to share your resources and expertise as well via online posts and in-person invites to join in the conversation. Click here to connect with the team.
