2016 Annual Meeting Highlights Six Lincoln Fighters, Dreamers, and Doers

This year's Annual Meeting featured six short presentations from people working to make Lincoln a healthier community. The speakers shared how they fought for increasing access to health care, why they dream of helping moms breastfeed their babies, and what they do help people struggling with mental illness. The presentations talked about growing up in places as different as Greeley, Nebraska, and Bogota, Colombia. Together, their stories demonstrate what's possible right here in Lincoln.
