Foundation for Healthy Generations is turning 40 this fall! It's amazing, and a bit sobering to think about the legacy of 40 years of work. One way in which we will celebrate this landmark is by hosting a statewide two day conference on September 17 & 18 "Coalescing for Change: Community Based Health Solutions."
We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Rick Mockler as Foundation for Healthy Generations Board Chair. Rick Mockler is the retired Deputy Director of the Snohomish Health District where he worked for the past 22 years. He is the immediate past Chair of the Washington State Association of Local Public Health Officials and is a long-term Board member of the Washington State Public Health Association. In 2003 he was a founder of the Public Health Roundtable, a coalition of organizations dedicated to securing a dedicated, sufficient and stable funding source for public health.
