In every American community, businesses have the ability to shape discussions and influence community health.

Improving community wellness isn't just for health care companies. And it isn't just about employee wellness. It’s about people—and how to make their lives healthier, happier, and more productive. We believe that every business can play a leadership role in bolstering the health of their customers, their communities, and our current and future workforce.

The U.S. Chamber Foundation, with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and local and regional chambers of commerce, has made creating a healthy workforce and healthy communities a top priority through the Health Means Business campaign. We’re bringing together businesses of all sizes, and their cross-sector partners, to become a powerful force for societal change. What began as a dialogue has become a call-to-action.

The Chamber Foundation’s Health Means Business campaign will host the first National Summit and Healthy10 Awards on February 15—16, 2017 in Washington D.C. The National Summit will bring together some of the most innovative businesses at the forefront of the health movement.

The Health Means Business National Summit will feature:

  • High caliber thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and influencers from the ranks of business, government, nonprofits, health organizations, academia, and the media.
  • Insightful panels, small group breakout sessions, and a variety of networking and physical fitness opportunities to showcase the powerful lessons learned from the Health Means Business campaign on a national stage.
  • Original research on the business investment in community health.
  • The campaign’s Health Champions Network.

We will explore the critical link between the business bottom line and health outcomes; the collective impact that can be achieved when focusing on the health of communities; and how businesses can become more competitive and help shape a healthier and more prosperous future, even outside the walls of their own businesses.

In addition, we'll honor ten outstanding cross-sector collaborations or innovative businesses working to create healthier communities across the nation. The winners will be recognized during the inaugural Healthy10 Awards Ceremony.

Join us this February and learn how you join our business-led movement to create healthier workers and healthier communities!  Register to attend the Health Means Business National Summit today!

NOTE: All proceeds from the registration fee will be donated to DC Central Kitchen and YMCA of Metropolitan Washington to support their mission of building a culture of health.
