When CHE introduced the Place Matters Community Mapping Project in 2015, it changed the way we look at health in Lincoln. We’ve updated the maps and will reveal them at CHE’s 2017 Annual Meeting. We’ll also share three powerful stories of people creating health in their ‘place’ in Lincoln through innovation, investing in early childhood, and fighting childhood obesity. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 31, at 3 p.m. at the Bryan East Plaza Conference Center, 1600 S. 48th Street. Please register online:
