KHF Symposium 2018

During the 2018 Kansas Health Foundation Symposium, nationally-known keynote speakers and Kansas-based panelists shared their thoughts on some of the leading health issues impacting Kansas communities. Nearly 200 participants, including nonprofit leaders, educators, elected officials, government staff and business leaders attended the Symposium, held June 7-8, 2018, in Wichita. Below, you’ll find video recordings of four of the keynote presentations and all three of the panels. We hope these presentations will continue to spark discussion, increase dialogue and inspire change long after the Symposium has ended. Please note, for contractual reasons, we were not able to record our opening speaker, Geoffrey Canada.
