We'd like to thank the 300-plus attendees and presenters who helped make the 2015 Arise Policy Conference a huge success! Below, you'll find a link to photos from the energetic event on Feb. 5, 2015, at Birmingham-Southern College. You'll also find links to handouts and materials from both the workshops and the closing presentation from State Health Officer Dr. Don Williamson.
We were excited to see everyone, and we hope you keep in touch! Follow Arise on Facebook and Twitter, and share your feedback and your vision for a brighter future in our state using #AriseVision. Together, we can build a better Alabama for all!
