The 2018 College Health and Wellness Leadership and Innovations Summit was a high-impact gathering of student health and wellness professionals, higher education officials, and policy leaders, all convened to discuss student well-being.
This summit will touch on topics such as what student well-being is, how to measure it, and what innovative approaches campuses are taking to promote a more holistic approach for their students. In addition, panelists at this summit discussed the challenges campuses face in meeting the basic needs of an evolving student body, particularly regarding hunger and homelessness, and discuss funding mechanisms, primarily via student health insurance plans.

Building off the success of ACHA's 2017 Mental Health Symposium, this year's summit will be broken into two 2-day concurrent programs:
Program 1—Building a Culture of Campus Well-Being
This summit will touch on real-world innovative solutions to improve student well-being and how to measure it and promote a more holistic experience for students.
Program 2—Creating a Foundation for Well-Being: Addressing Our Students' Food and Shelter Needs
This summit will focus on addressing the basic needs of our students' well-being by examining issues related to food insecurity and homelessness.
These programs are designed to promote an, in-depth, discussion on student well-being ranging from its definition and innovative approaches to meeting the basic needs of today's student body. We hope that you will join ACHA this October to participate in this robust and crucial discussion.
